Tyrone manager Mickey Harte looks set to turn to three previous heroes in the wake of mounting injury problems.
Harte admits that with injuries to key players like Sean Cavanagh, Kyle Coney, Tommy McGuigan and Ronan O’ Neill that he made need to coax former players out of retirement.
Cavanagh is the latest casualty to join the treatment room as he damaged his right shoulder playing for his club, Moy, at the weekend. He had only just come back from six months on the sidelines with an injury to his left shoulder.
It is believed that Harte is looking to bring back Brian McGuigan, Philip Jordan and Brian Dooher for the O’Neill County.
“You have to look at what’s required – do any of those players have an interest in helping us out? And a lot of things have to fit together for that to happen”, said Harte.
“I could not say at this time, but we need to look at all options. If we need to add some people to the panel we’d certainly look at those options.”
Harte has now lost four forwards, all of which contribute significantly to the Tyrone attack and he admits it will be a hard task.
“Some things in life you can’t change and you have to deal with what you’re faced”, Harte continued.
“I think there’s a lot of experience in the squad, there are a lot of good players there and I think we will be able to roll up the sleeves, so to speak, and deliver their best performance. If they do that, then we’ll not be too far off.
