THE SUNDAY GAME returned to our screens last night and with it came the first man-of-the-match award of 2015.

It was judged on the Donegal-Tyrone clash with one of Donegal’s most improved players this season getting the award.

Midfielder Martin Elhinney bagged 1-2 for Rory Gallagher’s side and he got the vote from the panellists Ciaran Whelan, Tomás Ó Sé and Benny Coulter.

Do you agree with the decision or would you have preferred to see one of the other nominees get it? Or did you feel there was someone overlooked from the clash in Ballybofey?

Let us know who you would have voted for.

Poll Results:

Martin McElhinney (Donegal) (1087)
Frank McGlynn (Donegal) (912)
Other (409)
Michael O'Neill (Tyrone) (316)
