  1. That's all folks

    That's it for another week from the Ulster Football Championship text commentary bunker. There is no official word yet on the replay date but next Saturday evening appears the likely time. We'll definitely be back in harness for the Tyrone v Cavan semi-final replay at Clones next Sunday. We'll have this evening's match report up on the BBC Sport NI website as soon as possible. It's been a busy day of sport so we're sure you'll understand the slight delay. Best wishes and thanks for watching.

  2. Donegal boss unhappy with length of injury-time

    Donegal boss Rory Gallagher is left disappointed as his team are caught in injury-time and makes clear his unhappiness at the six minutes of injury that the officials played.

    "I felt we were slightly the better side for most of the contest. We're disappointed to have been caught in injury-time after there was so much of it."

  3. Post update

    Brendan Devenney

    Former Donegal forward

    Quote Message: Both teams gave the ball away badly on a number of occasions in the closing stages and conceded fouls which will infuriate the managers.
  4. Full-time: Donegal 1-11 0-14 Monaghan

    So both Ulster football semi-finals require replays. Terrific contest here. These sides likely to face off at Breffni next Saturday night we're hearing. 

  5. Donegal 1-11 0-14 Monaghan

    Anthony Thompson's foul gifts another equalising chance to McManus and the Monaghan man makes no mistake in the final minute of injury-time. Gonna be a replay, I think.

  6. Donegal 1-11 0-13 Monaghan

    Monaghan's veteran sub Dick Clerkin carelessly gives the ball away in the middle of the field and after Donegal work the ball downfield, Christy Toye fists over the bar. Two minutes left.

  7. Donegal 1-10 0-13 Monaghan

    McManus points a free to cut Donegal's lead to a point. There are going to be six minutes of added time. Plenty of time for Monaghan to get on terms. Sure enough, McManus points another long-range free within a minute. Great courage from the Monaghan man.

  8. Beggan misses Monaghan free

    Monaghan keeper Rory Beggan misses a long-range chance to cut Donegal's lead to the minimum. Exciting stuff here.

  9. Donegal 1-10 0-11 Monaghan

    Being reduced to 14 players has galvanised Donegal. Eoin McHugh doubles their lead as they seem to have the legs on Monaghan at this stage.

  10. Post update

    Brendan Devenney

    Former Donegal forward

    Quote Message: It will be a shame if there is a loser in this contest. Both teams deserve another go.
  11. Donegal 1-9 0-11 Monaghan

    From the resultant free, McBrearty restores Donegal's lead.

  12. Colin Walshe black carded

    Monaghan defender Colin Walshe is black carded for hauling down Ryan McHugh.

  13. Donegal 1-8 0-11 Monaghan

    Conor McCarthy levels the contest again from a free but it's his final action as he is replaced.

  14. GOAL: Donegal 1-8 0-10 Monagah

    But incredibly Donegal are ahead within a minute of McElhinney's premature departure as Odhran MacNiallais fires into the net after being given acres of space.

  15. Donegal down to 14 men

    Donegal are down to 14 men as Martin McElhinney picks up a black card as he appears to take out Drew Wylie off the ball. McElhinney was yellow carded earlier and in gaelic football, yellow and black equals red.

  16. Donegal 0-8 0-10 Monaghan

    McBrearty has his head in his hands as he blasts over the bar on the turn after good work by Ryan McHugh and Martin McElhinney. It was another goal chance.

  17. McBrearty misses another Donegal free

    McBrearty claims his curling free from 35 yards has gone between the posts but the umpires don't agree. Donegal still three behind.

  18. Donegal 0-7 0-10 Monaghan

    Make that three as O'Connell slots his second straight point after another flowing Monaghan move.

  19. Murphy off target

    Michael Murphy hits his third wide of the second half as he is off-target from a long-range free. Monaghan still two ahead.

  20. Donegal 0-7 0-9 Monaghan

    There is two points between the teams for the first time since the 13th minute as Karl O'Connell fires over a great point after a sweeping move.
