Malachy O'Rourke expects 'intense struggle' against Donegal in final

Monaghan manager Malachy O'Rourke says he expects an 'intense struggle' against Donegal in Sunday's Ulster Football final at Clones, the third consecutive meeting between the sides in the annual provincial final.

"Both teams know each other well so there won't be many secrets between the sides. We will just prepare as best we can and try to produce a big performance on the day.

"You are always looking for any weaknesses to exploit but Donegal can lay claim to be the best team in Ulster given their record of recent seasons," said O'Rourke.
