Fingal retained their unbeaten run to set up a crunch clash with Donegal with victory over Fermanagh. Debuting at Croke Park, Fingal were not overawed, with JM Sheridan showing some terrific form.

While Fermanagh were to edge a point early on, Fingal found the back of the net on four minutes when Dave Smyth scored. Moments later, Fermanagh responded with a goal from Sean Corrigan.
