Colm Cavanagh states that Tyrone will have to stop Armagh attacking ace Jamie Clarke if the Red Hands are to make it through to a fourth round qualifier clash with Connaught runners up Roscommon. It’s sure to be another full blooded encounter between these two near neighbours and one that the Moy ace is looking forward to.
“Jamie in particularly has been scoring for fun and while they are by no means a one man attack he will need to be closely watched if we are to get past them. Games between the two in the past have always been keenly contested and this weekend’s will be no different and we are well aware of the massive challenge that awaits us.
People thought that Armagh had missed the boat when they didn’t beat Wicklow in the Athletic Grounds but from what I saw of the game I felt that they were unfortunate as they conceded a couple of lucky goals. They showed their character when travelling to a difficult venue like Aughrim last weekend and getting a result and that will have given their confidence a massive boost.
It’s always a battle when you are playing against Armagh regardless of what the competition is and the fact that the losers’ season is over makes this game even more important and we have to be prepared to give it our best shot.”
