COLM SHALVEY TALKING POINTS Monaghan really needed to build up a considerable lead in the first half, but a hangover from the losing run in the league may have contributed to a lack of confidence at times on Sunday. Monaghan got some joy from pressing the Cavan kick-out, but save for a quick one-two of points from Conor McManus and Jack McCarron towards the half-hour mark, they were unable to turn that into any sustained momentum.

While some teams have managed to step up their performance levels in recent weeks – exhibit ...
