Donegal manager Rory Gallagher is expected to learn tonight if he will be given an extended term in charge.

There has been speculation of late in relation to Gallagher's future and already a number of leading players have come out in support of their manager.

Captain Michael Murphy believes that the side is "still developing" and suggests that Gallagher should be allowed to continue in his role.

Club delegates will have an opportunity to vote on this tonight and the indications are that Gallagher will be given the go-ahead.

Meanwhile, the Cavan county board is to accelerate its search for a new county team boss following the recent resignation of Terry Hyland.

A number of prominent names have been linked with the post and, while there has been a suggestion that the board might wish to appoint from within the county, there would now seems to be a groundswell of opinion in favour of going for a more high-profile candidate. Developments are expected as the week unfolds.
