Donegal will have to go through the qualifiers if they wish to be in Croke Park come the third weekend of September.
They lost out to a strong side in Tyrone in an open, high-scoring game in Clones on Sunday afternoon. It was a 9 point victory for Tyrone, 1-21 to 1-12.
The scoreline could've been a lot worse if it wasn't for 2 fantastic saves from Marc Anthony McGinley in goal for Donegal, one in each half.
Tyrone will be back in Clones playing Monaghan or Down in the Ulster SFC Final, and Donegal will be fighting to get through the qualifiers.
