Are monaghan going to name a team or are they struggling to find 15 fit players?

We're just waiting as long as possible to see who's actually fit to play. Dick and Lennon might be asked to tog out yet.

Monaghan team named. As always, take with a pinch of salt and expect 2/3 changes regardless.

Beggan
Wylie
Boyle
Wylie
O'Connell
Walshe
Duffy
Kelly
K Hughes
Ward
Malone
Carey
McAnespie
McManus
O'Hanlon

Interesting to see Kieran back and named to start. Wouldn't be at all shocked if there was a late change, but he seems ready to play some part. Also great to see Kearns back in the squad, he might not play much if at all in this game, but fantastic to have him back in the fold.

I like the look of the defense, definitely agree with having Boyle at full back which frees up Drew a bit as well. Attack looks like it's been picked to work hard which will be crucial this evening, with a 2 man full forward line of McManus and O'Hanlon. I probably would have held O'Hanlon in reserve for an impact sub, but then I haven't been seeing how he's gone in the lead up to this. Big opportunity for him to make an impact, hope he does well. Then you've potential impact off the bench from McCarthy, McGinn and Bannigan, though the latter 2 haven't seen as much football as you'd have liked this year so far.

20 mins gone Cavan 1-4 Monaghan 0-2. Monaghan have yet to score from play.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Monaghan shocking so far, fortunate to be only 7 points behind

Half time Cavan 1-8 Monaghan 0-4.  The home side good value for that 7 point lead.

Great half by Cavan they look so well organised under Graham, Monaghan starting to panic already going by their wayward shooting in that half.
