  1. Coming up next week

    So Fermanagh set up an Ulster semi-final against Monaghan as they see off Antrim at Brewster Park but it's not a game that will live long in the memory.

    We'll hope for a lot more excitement next Sunday when Derry face Down at Celtic Park, with a 14:00 BST throw-in.

    The match will be shown live on BBC2 Northern Ireland and there will be commentary on Radio Ulster medium wave with our live text coverage on the website.

    See you next week.

  2. Peter McGrath's reaction

    "The extra man did affect the game," said the Fermanagh manager, who also spoke of his team's upcoming challenge against Monaghan in the Ulster semi-final on 21 June.

    "James McMahon, our extra man, is a very intelligent footballer and we were able to find our men a bit better in the middle third of the field in the second half.

    "People are too quick to put a ceiling on what Fermanagh can achieve. We'll go out and play against any team thinking that on any given day, we can get over the line."

  3. Full-time

    Fermanagh 1-13 0-08 Antrim

    The final score is perhaps a little flattering for Fermanagh but they have deserved their win. They will have to pick up their game considerably for the semi-final against Monaghan but it's job done for the Ernemen.

    "Fermanagh deserved it although the scoreline flattered them a bit. They can now look forward to a sterner test against Monaghan in the semi-finals."

  5. Goal

    Sean Quigley scores a Fermanagh penalty with the last kick of the game after Niall Delargy hauls down Daniel Kille.

  6. Fermanagh 0-13 0-08 Antrim

    Quigley chips over another Fermanagh point. Five ahead with four minutes left. Fermanagh look to be home and hosed.

  7. Fermanagh 0-12 0-08 Antrim

    Daniel Kille kicks a glorious long-range score from play and another fine effort from Paul McCusker extends the Erne advantage to four. Time running out for Antrim.

  8. Post update

    Martin Clarke

    BBC Sport NI pundit

    "It will be interesting to see how Fermanagh play out the final minutes. They can kill the game or go out and get the scores to put Antrim away."

  9. Substitution

    Two in fact by Antrim. Niall O'Neill and Dermot McAleese introduced for Mark Sweeney and Ryan Murray with nine minutes remaining.

  10. Fermanagh 0-10 0-08 Antrim

    McGourty's frees are keeping Antrim in the game. He knocks over another score with 12 minutes of normal time after a Conor Murray run draws the foul.

  11. Fermanagh 0-10 0-07 Antrim

    Fermanagh move three ahead again as Barry Mulrone finishes off a flowing move.

  12. Fermanagh 0-09 0-07 Antrim.

    McGourty slots another Antrim free. It's the second Saffron free in a row that has been brought forward 15 metres because of Erne indiscretions. Silly by Fermanagh.

  13. Fermanagh 0-09 0-06 Antrim

    CJ McGourty's free leaves a kick of the ball between the teams again. Antrim make another substitution with Colm Duffin on for Ricky Johnston.

  14. Post update

    Martin Clarke

    BBC Sport NI pundit

    "Sean Quigley missed his first three frees, then scored the next three - that's a testament to his mindset."

  15. Fermanagh 0-09 0-05 Antrim

    A blatant pick-up off the ground by Kieran McGourty gifts another successful 30-metre free for Quigley. Fermanagh starting to make good use of their second-half wind advantage.

  16. Fermanagh 0-08 0-05 Antrim

    Ryan Jones floats over a towering and inspirational point from 50 metres to extend Fermanagh's lead to three.

  17. Post update

    Martin Clarke

    BBC Sport NI pundit

    "The game is drifting at the minute although some players are trying to stand up and make something happen."

  18. Fermanagh 0-07 0-05 Antrim

    Sean Quigley fist pumps towards the home supporters after slotting a 35-metre free. After missing his three opening frees, Quigley is finding his range.

  19. Fermanagh 0-06 0-05 Antrim

    Two minutes after the restart, CJ McGourty punishes a Michael Jones foul as he kicks his third score to leave the minimum between the teams.

  20. Substitution

    Antrim introduce Queen's midfielder Jack Dowling at half-time. No changes by Peter McGrath.

  21. Post update

  22. Half-time: Fermanagh 0-06 0-04 Antrim

    Fermanagh lead by two at half-time. After the combative exchanges in Ballybofey and the relative excitement of Breffni Park last weekend, it's all been a bit flat so far here. Even McVeigh's red card was greeted by relative silence. But the game is surely Fermanagh's to lose with them two ahead and a man up.

  23. Fermanagh 0-06 0-04 Antrim

    CJ McGourty wins the most dubious of frees for the Saffrons after Fermanagh defender Niall Cassidy cuts out a long ball and the St Gall's man slots the kick.

  24. Fermanagh 0-06 0-03 Antrim

    A tap-over Sean Quigley free is followed by a fine Barry Mulrone effort from play. Fermanagh suddenly three ahead.

  25. Post update

    Martin Clarke

    BBC Sport NI pundit

    "He deserved the red. He certainly went to make an impact and can't have too many excuses."

  26. Red card

    Antrim's Sean McVeigh is sent off after catching Ciaran Flaherty with an elbow. Flaherty's fancy footwork may have outfoxed McVeigh but replays suggest that the former London player can have few complaints about Maurice Deegan's decision.

  27. Big blow for Fermanagh

    Influential Fermanagh defender Ryan McCluskey has been struggling since tangling with Pollock 10 minutes ago and is forced off by his leg injury.

  28. Post update

    Martin Clarke

    BBC Sport NI pundit

    "I remember playing against CJ McGourty at school level - we usually had a shoot-out and I expect him to have a big impact today."

  29. Fermanagh 0-04 0-03 Antrim

    CJ slots Antrim's first score in 15 minutes after Paddy McBride earns a free.

  30. Here's CJ

    No sooner than we had mentioned him and CJ McGourty is introduced for Pollock. Not really sure why he wasn't on from the start.

  31. Post update

    CJ McGourty's free-taking talents being missed by Antrim as his St Gall's club-mate Michael Pollock is unable to hit the target from 35 metres.

  32. Substitution

    Fermanagh forced to make a change in the 22nd minute with injured Ruairi Corrigan replaced by Daniel Kille. Corrigan appears to have a hamstring injury.

  33. Fermanagh 0-04 0-02 Antrim

    Sean Quigley regroups from a missed free to set up Ryan Jones to score Fermanagh's fourth point. The rain is starting to teem down at Brewster Park.

  34. Post update

    Martin Clarke

    BBC Sport NI pundit

    "In my three years away from the game the physique of players has changed and Ciaran Flaherty needed every bit of his strength to get that point."

  35. Fermanagh 0-03 0-02 Antrim

    Kieran McGourty levels for Antrim but Ciaran Flaherty quickly restores Antrim's lead in the 14th minute.

  36. Bad Fermanagh miss

    Paul McCusker wastes a great scoring chance for the Ernemen after Paddy McBride is blown up for over-carrying.

  37. Fermanagh 0-02 0-01 Antrim

    Ryan Murray knocks over a fine reply for the Saffrons. Both sides producing some early enterprise here.

  38. Fermanagh 0-02 0-00 Antrim

    Tomas Corrigan swings over a fine opening score for Fermanagh and Ryan Jones soon doubles the home side's lead.

  39. Missed Antrim chance

    After Sean Quigley hits the Antrim woodwork with a long-range free, Owen Gallagher bursts through the Fermanagh defence but his attempted pass to Michael Pollock is cut out. An early escape for the the Ernemen.

  40. Throw-in

    Referee Maurice Deegan throws in the ball at Brewster Park.

  43. Antrim change

    Well fancy that. There is a late change to the Antrim team with Kieran McGourty replacing his brother CJ in the Saffron attack. That looks like a major blow to the Saffrons's scoring potential. No Fermanagh changes....so far at least.

  44. Interview

    BBC Sport NI presenter Austin O'Callaghan interviews Femanagh manager Peter McGrath

    "If it doesn't send a tingle down your spine, there's something wrong," says Peter McGrath to BBC Radio Ulster's Austin O'Callaghan ahead of the throw-in.

  45. Line-ups

    Every team announced before a Championship game comes with a health warning, but if Fermanagh's selection is to be believed, they will be without skipper Eoin Donnelly because of a thumb injury.

    Chris Snow starts in goal in place of Thomas Treacy with James McMahon preferred to Tiarnan Daly in defence.

    Antrim boss Frank Fitzsimons hands a championship debut to St Gall's defender Conor Burke while key forward CJ McGourty is passed fit to start in the attack after being bothered by a hip problem.

    Don't be surprised if I am back to you shortly with a team tweak or two.

    Fermanagh: C Snow, M Jones, N Cassidy, M O'Brien, D McCusker, R McCluskey, J McMahon, R Jones, R O'Callaghan, B Mulrone, C Flaherty, P McCusker, T Corrigan, S Quigley, R Corrigan.

    Antrim: C Kerr; R Johnston, S McVeigh, C Burke; J Crozier, T Scullion, N Delargy; C Murray, M Sweeney; J Laverty, O Gallagher, P McBride; CJ McGourty, M Pollock, R Murray.

  46. Starting soon

    Fermanagh manager Peter McGrath

    Welcome to our live coverage of the second quarter-final in the Ulster Football Championship between Fermanagh and Antrim at Brewster Park.

    The counties met at the corresponding stage in Enniskillen 12 months ago when the Saffrons edged a surprise but deserved 2-18 to 3-13 victory.

    But Fermanagh, again managed by former Down All-Ireland winning boss Peter McGrath, are even stronger favourites today after securing promotion to Division 2 of the Football League as the Saffrons failed to get out of Division 4.

    Fermanagh are the only Ulster county who have never won the Anglo-Celt Cup while the last of Antrim's nine triumphs came back in 1951.

    Sunday's winners will face Monaghan in the opening Ulster semi-final on 21 June.
