McEneaney lauds Monaghan character

Monaghan manager Eamon McEneaney is delighted after his team's 1-12 to 1-9 Ulster Football Championship victory over Antrim at a sweltering Clones.

"We have been able to win tight games this year so this [win] is massive for us," said McEneaney.

The Monaghan manager acknowledged that he had taken a "huge gamble" in introducting sub Tommy Freeman in the second half.

"We weren't sure how long he would last because of his hamstring injury.

"But this is a good day for us and we'll savour it."
