MAXI Curran’s visitors are to put Cavan’s confidence to the test at Kingspan Breffni tomorrow for the TG4 Ulster Ladies SFC semi-final.
Match preview: Cavan v Donegal, Kingspan Breffni, Saturday. 5pm
Cavan showed excellent form during the group stages of the Lidl National League, topping Division 2 with three wins from three, before losing out to Meath at the semi-final stage.
They’re in a tough TG4 All-Ireland Championship group alongside Armagh, Monaghan and Mayo, but they’ll quietly fancy their chances after defeating both Armagh and Monaghan in the League.
Before all of that, Cavan have the chance to reach a TG4 Ulster Senior Final, but they won’t get it easy against Donegal.
Donegal were one of the League’s form teams, as they scored Division 1 victories over Mayo, Galway and Westmeath to reach the last four.
Cork beat them at the semi-final stage, however, and now Donegal’s thoughts are firmly focused on provincial and All-Ireland Championship assaults.
Cavan (v Donegal): E Walsh; R Doonan, M Smith, S Lynch; S Greene, L Fitzpatrick, M Sheridan; C Dolan, N Byrd; C Finnegan, L McVeety, A Kiernan; G Sheridan, A Sheridan, N Keenaghan.
Donegal (v Cavan): A McColgan; N Carr, E McGinley, E Gallagher; A.M. Logue, Nicole McLaughlin, R Rodgers; K Herron, S Twohig; B McLaughlin, Niamh McLaughlin, N Boyle; N Hegarty, K Guthrie, G McLaughlin.
