July 10 2010: Analysis: All-Ireland Senior Football Championship: Qualifying round two: Fermanagh v Armagh

Man of the moment... Jamie Clarke

The Crossmaglen lad is averaging a goal per game in this Championship, after what proved to be the match-winner up in Derry and his two early majors against Donegal last time out.

The student, who’s just recently turned 21, also scored two points from play against both Monaghan and Donegal, showing that he’s an all-round threat to any defence.

However, he found the going harder against, respectively, Dermot McArdle and Karl Lacey, when they went onto him after strong starts.

Tomorrow, he may find himself up against the experienced Niall Bogue from the outset.

Whether or not he makes another blistering beginning to a game, Fermanagh would be wise to watch him all the way.
