Carlin And Murphy Injury Doubts For Ulster Semi
Tyrone have been hit with a double injury blow ahead of their Ulster semi final clash with holders Donegal with the news that Dermot Carlin and Mickey Murphy both face a race against time to be fit.
Defender Carlin, who was superb against Armagh scoring one of the points of the game, lasted less then five minutes for his club Killyclogher’s league game against Carrickmore on Saturday afternoon and he hopes that the injury sustained won’t keep him on the side lines.
“I felt something go in the lower half of my leg and I had to go off,” said Carlin.
“Its very disappointing as I have worked hard in training to get into good shape and hopefully it won’t keep me out of the semi final.”
Galbally man Murphy hit five points for his club in their derby meeting with Rock but in the final quarter he had to go into the full forward line after picking up a knock on his shoulder having also sustained the same injury when coming on at halftime in the win over Armagh. These two injuries come hot on the heels of Justin McMahon’s continuing hamstring problems, the Omagh man not featuring for his club over the weekend after having to go off at halftime against Armagh.
On the plus side of things Stephen O’Neill gave a Masterclass in finishing as Clann na Gael picked up a much needed win while by all accounts Brian McGuigan was in superb form for Ardboe at the weekend as well, notching three points against Derrylaughan.
