O'Rourke expects Antrim to regroup

Monaghan boss Malachy O'Rourke believes his team's promotion-securing victory over relegated Antrim will have little relevance for the Ulster SFC clash between the sides in June.

The Farney men, who beat the Saffrons 3-16 to 0-13 at Clones, secured promotion along with Meath after the Royals defeated Fermanagh 2-12 to 0-14.

"I'm sure Antrim will be a completely different team when we meet them on 9 June," added O'Rourke.
