Watch: Mac Ceallabhuí says 'any day you beat Tyrone is a good day'

There was little of nothing between Donegal and Tyrone until the closing stages until Declan Bonner's side took the bull by the horns and get the vital late scores

Jeaic Mac Ceallabhuí scored Donegal's second goal in their 2-10 to 0-12 win over Tyrone to send Declan Bonner's side onto five points in Division 1 of the Allianz League.

Donegal mightn’t have lost a home league match in 12 years at Ballybofey, but this week we heard the smart money was supposed to be all for Tyrone.

However, Declan Bonner’s side came from four down in the first half when it looked as though they’d lost their way, having not scored in 31 minutes. A Conor O’Donnell goal meant the sides were level 1-4 to 0-7 at half-time and five minutes from time they were still level at 1-9 to 0-12.

With talk of a draw filling the air it was Donegal who took the initiative with local boy Oisin Gallen pointed on 65 minutes and then Mac Ceallabhuí slapping home a Peadar Mogan centre four minutes into injury time.
