Monaghan can provide further evidence that they are ready for life in Division One of the National Football League when they face Cork at Pairc Ui Rinn tonight (7.00pm).
It's a challenge which manager Seamus McEnaney positively relishes, especially as his side still have a game in hand.
"Maybe we were not that impressive against Meath last weekend but we know there is a lot more left in the tank," says McEnaney.
Hosts Cork were left with faces as red as their jerseys when they succumbed to a Cavan side last Saturday that had not won a game in the league up until then.
Manager Conor Counihan has been left with plenty of food for thought and knows that nothing less than victory tonight will satisfy home support.
Cork are missing some key players but there will be a familiar hue to the Monaghan side for whom Paul McGuigan, Paul Finlay, Tommy Freeman, Damien Freeman and Eoin Lennon have been hugely impressive lately.
MONAGHAN (v Cork): P McBennett; D Mone, J P Mone, D Morgan; D Freeman, D Hughes, P McGuigan; D Clerkin, E Lennon; C McManus, P Finlay, S Gollogly; R Woods, V Corey, T Freeman.
