Tyrone sweat on injured trio
TYRONE are sweating on injuries to three key players following Sunday’s clash with Meath at PaircTailteann.
Full back Ronan McNamee and attackers Ronan O’Neill and Conor Meyler were all forced out of the action at various stages, and are doubtful for the Ulster derby clash with Armagh on Saturday week.
McNamee lasted just four minutes, limping off with an ankle knock sustained in attempting to prevent Mickey Newman’s early goal.
O’Neill, who top-scored with 1-4, failed to finish the game due to a back problem, while Meyler, who came in as a substitute, suffered a hamstring injury.
The Red Hands finished the game with 13 men, having used all their subs, but still held on for a six points win which secured promotion back to Division One with two games to spare.
“It certainly is a worry. We took a bit of a risk, putting in all our subs, and we ended up down to 13 men,” said manager Mickey Harte.
“That puts you in a bad place, and a few of the men that came off with injuries, we don’t know how serious that will be.
“Some of them looked like hamstring injuries, and we don’t know how time-consuming that will be.
“But we have a couple of weeks now until the next game, and that’s helpful, rather than week on week now.”
