Neil McGee (Donegal) v
Conor McManus (Monaghan)
MONAGHAN will need scores, and plenty of them, from their main attacking threat, and Donegal will know that restricting McManus's tally will go a long way to winning this match.
The Clontibret man is also a creator of chances for colleagues so he must be contained. neil McGee would suit well the physical challenge of Kieran hughes but brother eamonn has the height to deal with the Scotstown man's aerial strength. neil is still Donegal's main man-marker against the opposition dangerman, as evidenced by picking up Tyrone skipper Stephen o'neill in the Ulster semi-final, and he also has the brawn to test McManus's mettle in the early encounters. Whoever is McManus's direct marker, though, will undoubtedly be assisted by at least one colleague as Donegal endeavour to reduce the room that Cavan allowed him in the second half of their semi-final.
