Tyrone ladies football team manager Gerry Moane is hoping that his team can replicate their recent outstanding performance against Kerry when they meet Donegal in the Ulster Senior Championship at Kingspan Breffni today (3.00pm).

"I thought the team's effort against Kerry in the closing stages of the league was the best I had seen for some time. But I think the players will need to lift their game even more for this clash with Donegal because they will undoubtedly prove very tough opponents indeed," says Moane.

Donegal reached the league semi-finals and manager Maxie Curran will look to players like Katy Herron, Geraldine McLaughlin, Karen Guthrie and Niamh Hegarty to inspire his side today.

Tyrone skipper Neamh Woods, meanwhile, has the experience and passion to inspire her side for what will be a formidable challenge.

The Ulster Junior Championship semi-finals will be played at the Athletic Grounds, Armagh tomorrow when Antrim meet Fermanagh (5.00pm) and Armagh take on Monaghan (7.00pm).

Fermanagh beat Antrim to win the Division Four Lidl Ladies National League title when Eimear Smyth produced a stunning performance in grabbing 1-6 and she will certainly be the player Antrim will have to shackle this time round.

Antrim skipper Saoirse Tennyson believes that her team can rise to the occasion this time.

"While we missed the boat in the league final we are getting another chance and we aim to take it," says Tennyson.
