James Morgan (Armagh) v Conor McManus (Monaghan) (left)
WITH 20 minutes gone last Sunday, McManus was back in his own half tackling as Armagh broke forward. He had been starved of the ball and obviously wanted to get into the game. When Monaghan counterattacked McManus was still deep and he took a pass off Vinny Corey before blasting the ball over the bar from 45 metres. It was his only score from play in the game and he was never a real threat around the posts because Morgan never gave him an inch.
After his injury problems, did McManus need a replay? Probably not, then again, he has had another week to recover and we could see more from him tomorrow. Either way, this battle could decide the game.
