Ulster Final upset against holders Tyrone gives Monaghan a wake-up call

22 July 2010 No Comments by The Northern Standard

It’s win or bust for the Monaghan senior footballers in Saturday’s All-Ireland SFC fourth-round qualifier against Kildare in Croke Park.

Séamus McEnaney and his team don’t have long to get over their crushing Ulster final defeat at the hands of Tyrone, with just six days between that game and this weekend’s return to action. They will be determined, however, to make up for the disappointment of last week and keep their championship hopes alive. McEnaney said after the Tyrone game “We won’t finish on that note; we won’t be walking away from the 2010 championship in that fashion.”

Monaghan’s cause hasn’t been helped by a growing injury list, which includes John Paul Mone and Vincent Corey, with doubts also hanging over Shane Duffy. They suffered a setback before the Tyrone game due to the withdrawal of Corey, who is reportedly out with an ankle-ligament injury.
