Donegal captain Michael Murphy was pleased with his side’s convincing Ulster SFC quarter-final victory Derry, but is refusing to get carried away by the 10-point win.

Murphy, who slotted over three frees in the 2-13 to 0-09 success, insisted that he and his team-mates would have to ratchet up their performance level to see off Tyrone in the semi-finals.

"The goals put a bit of a gloss on the game," the Glenswilly clubman told RTÉ Radio.

"We wouldn’t be happy with a lot of aspects of our play.

"That performance won’t be good enough to beat Tyrone, but we’re still trying to work on things and we’ll continue to do that over the next couple of weeks."

Murphy failed to highlight any specific flaw that needed addressing, saying: “All facets of the game need improving.

"Derry were always going to throw a lot at us, coming on the back of the Ulster Championship last year, and they did that.

"We’re just happy to come out of it with a win and we’ll have to focus now on the task at hand against Tyrone."
