Coney can't wait for Dubs showdownBy
KYLE Coney is making no promises to Tyrone supporters that he will repeat his Pairc Ui Rinn exhibition this weekend. But he does intend to enjoy the occasion, and feels the visit of the Dubs to Healy Park provides the perfect opportunity for tyrone to shine.
A nine-point haul in last Sunday's draw with Cork reminded the GAA world of the outstanding talent the game had been missing during Coney's two-year injury nightmare.
Another draw will be enough to secure a place in the NFL semi-finals, but Coney wants to go for the win and march into the last four in style.
"there would be no better way to get to the semi-finals, if we were to get there, than to beat the All-Ireland champions," he said.
"It will draw a good crowd to Omagh and hopefully we can push on and reach the semi-finals, because it will be a good stepping stone for the rest of the year."
Coney has started just two games this season, but his rapid return to form has taken everyone by surprise.
Having missed the best part of two seasons, his main priority is not to rack up big scoring tallies, but to get through the year without succumbing to another injury.
