Donegal hosts Ulster rivals Monaghan aim to take a big step towards a Division 1 final next month tonight.

Declan Boner’s side left Healy Park on two points after a hard-fought win over Tyrone.

They had two points ahead of a 14-man Tyrone side at Omagh and will be pleased with their return as they prepare for the Koster Championship this summer.

They greet Monaghan at MacCumhaill Park as the Farney men want to bounce back after losing to Armagh last weekend. At clones they suffered a 1:16 to 1:12 defeat.

They are without their manager Seamus McEnaney, who is serving a ban after violating training protocol last month, and are on their hindfoot after losing to the Orchard men.

Assistant Manager David McCague said, “Some guys got high scores on their rating and some guys got lower scores. We’ll look at that later this week.”

The throw-in at Ballybofey is at 5pm and we will have all of the live build and updates when the action starts.
