Bradley Blow For Tyrone

Tyrone have been dealt a blow with the news that key attacker Mark Bradley is set for a spell on the side-lines after injuring his ankle in the early stages of Tyrone’s Ulster championship defeat by Monaghan last Sunday.


The Killyclogher clubman had an MRI scan in Belfast on Monday and met up with Tyrone physio Louis O’Connor on Thursday when it was confirmed that he has damaged medial and lateral ligaments.


It’s an injury that is set to keep him on the side-lines for at least five weeks so he will miss out on Tyrone’s first qualifier on the weekend on June 9th and also won’t be available for their next game should they progress.


“I went to make a tackle on a Monaghan defender after fourteen or fifteen minutes and I knew right away that something was wrong,” admitted Mark.


“When I got up I went to put weight on my foot but it sort of gave way and I had to go to ground again. I then tried to play on but couldn’t run and when our physio came on to look at it he immediately told me to come off.


It was a devastating blow for me because we had started the game so well and I thought that we were going places but unfortunately it went downhill for me and the team after that.”


It not the news that manager Mickey Harte would have hoped for with Lee Brennan also a serious doubt after a recurrence of a hamstring injury forced him off early at Healy Park as well. Tiernan McCann and Colm Cavanagh, who were both injury doubts going into the game, both had to be replaced as well and with Peter Harte getting sent off late in the game the Red Hands could well be without a third of last Sunday’s starting fifteen for the upcoming qualifier.
