Donegal's dominance over Tyrone continues following the victory for Rory Gallagher's side in Ballybofey on Sunday.

The 1-13 to 1-10 victory sees the reigning Ulster champions move forward to a provincial quarter-final clash with Armagh on 14 June.

Another fascinating encounter awaits at the Athletic Grounds, and Donegal will expect another test of their credentials there, similar to the challenge Tyrone brought to proceedings by the banks of the Finn. 

Speaking after Donegal's victory, their captain Michael Murphy told RTÉ Sport: "It was tit-for-tat the whole way and that was always going to be the case. We got off to a decent start and then Tyrone came back into it with a goal and then they went ahead.

"You want to be testing yourself against the best teams and Tyrone are one of the best teams in the country" - Michael Murphy

"Thanks be to God, we got the points at the end to push get us over the line."

Justin McMahon kept a close eye on Murphy through the game, which is all part of the game, according to the Glenswilly clubman.

"I suppose that's you expect in championship football," he added.

"You want to be testing yourself against the best teams and Tyrone are one of the best teams in the country. It was a full-hearted game and we have a huge game the next day against Armagh."

Donegal boss Rory Gallagher concurred with his captain's view on the effort put in by Mickey Harte's side and was grateful to goalkeeper Paul Durcan for saves either side of half-time from Peter Harte.

"You never run away from Tyrone and they put up a massive performance," he said. 

"We started well but Tyrone were always going to have their football patch. We were hanging on a wee bit at the end and it was a great save from Paul Durcan." 

"When asked whether the fare at MacCumhail Park answered the critics who had forecasted a dour encounter, Gallagher's reaction was concise. 

"Well, nobody left early and the football was exciting. It may not have been great for the nerves, but I'm just glad we won."
