Conor Breslin does player ratings for the All-Ireland group stage clash between Donegal and Monaghan at Healy Park.

Shaun Patton
Changed his usual approach of staying in the net by joining the attack. Excellent with the kick-outs and looked very comfortable on the ball. Fifty metre free on the 72nd minute restored Donegal’s three-point lead. 8/10

Mark Curran
A great debut season for the Dungloe man. Very eager to get on the ball and created options going forward. 7/10

Brendan McCole
One of best performances he’s produced in a long time. He held Jack McCarron for the majority of the game before picking up Conor McManus. Man of the Match. 9/10

Caolan McColgan
A solid display from McColgan, who also got forward on a few occasions to put Donegal on the front foot. 6/10

Caolan Ward
Got on a lot of possession, especially in the first half, but was guilty of a few handling errors and poor passes. 6/10

Eoghan Ban Gallagher
The heart of the Donegal defence. Kept his performance consistent for the full 70 minutes with superb tackles and landed a point in the first half. 8/10

Stephen McMenamin
One of his quieter games in terms of getting on the ball. Played the majority of the game as a stationary defender and Monaghan got very little joy when they tried to run past him. 7/10

Caolan McGonagle
Was a strong presence throughout. Hit a great point from midfield and won plenty of breaking ball. 7/10

Hugh McFadden
Captain for the afternoon, the Killybegs man was vital as the link on the attacking play. His clearance inside the box deep into injury-time was crucial to his side’s victory. 7/10

Daire O’Baoill
One can only imagine the scoring tally O’Baoill could have had. He ended with 0-3 but was involved in four or five other chances. Was a real thorn in the Monaghan defence. 7/10

Jamie Brennan
Scored his first championship point of the season today. Gave his side breathing room by winning and nailing a late free. 8/10

Ciaran Thompson
Scored 0-3 and was one of the best players of the pitch. The Naomh Conaill man was a threat. 7/10

Odhran Doherty
A late call-up for the young Naomh Conaill man. He worked very hard and made invaluable runs back to assist in his side’s defending. Will be happy with his outing. 7/10

Oisin Gallen
Another top performance from the Ballybofey man. Dangerous up top. Was eventually replaced by Patrick McBrearty. 7/10

Conor O’Donnell
Opened the match with a superb point. Has pace and intelligence caused Monaghan’s defence serious problems. The Farney men struggled to get to grips with him. 7/10

Subs: Patrick McBrearty, John Ross Molloy, Rory O’Donnell, Paul Brennan. 7/10
