Tyrone v Kildare: Game at a glance
MAN OF THE MATCH
Matthew Donnelly (Tyrone)
A calm finish for the game's decisive goal combined with a ferocious work-rate made Donnelly Tyrone's most significant player.
With the game level and after Shane Connolly saved Stephen O'Neill's penalty approaching the 50-minute mark, Kildare spurned a number of attacking opportunities that might have given them the lead at a decisive time.
Is it the end of the road for Kieran McGeeney as Kildare manager?
After showing composure to grab the game's only goal, Donnelly landed the point of the day with a huge effort from close to the sideline in the first half.
Joe McQuillan of Cavan was jostled as he left the field in Newbridge, but the sending off of Peter Kelly was coming.
WHAT THEY SAID
Mickey Harte (Tyrone manager):
"Over the whole game there were lots of footballers that played good football. The load was shared, different people just stood up at different times and I think that's what makes a good team."
Kieran McGeeney (Kildare manager):
"Kildare in general can show too much respect. You have to go out there and take it because in sport it's never given to you, it's never put in your lap. You have to bend for the ball, you're not going to get decisions – you have to ignore that – and you have to keep going."
