**Team news** Monaghan and Donegal to face off in Ulster derby

Monaghan (H) v Donegal (SUNDAY), 2.00pm, Clones (K McKeever, Armagh)

AN intriguing Ulster derby in Clones sees Monaghan host a Donegal side sitting in the top four ahead of the weekend’s fixtures, on scoring difference.

Donegal blitzed Westmeath in last weekend’s rearranged fixture and seem to be finding their feet now under the guidance of Maxi Curran.

But Monaghan earned their first points of the campaign with a merited victory over Kerry in Dublin last weekend – and they’ll fancy their chances of a second win on the spin.

These two counties know plenty about each other from Ulster fare but Donegal boast the strongest scoring difference in the top flight and with Yvonne Bonner in top form, they’ll feel confident of making it two wins from four outings.

On the flipside, a Monaghan victory would have them looking up the table, rather than over their shoulders.
