Injury Worries Deepen For Tyrone

The news doesn’t get any better for Tyrone ahead of tomorrow’s draw for the first round of the All Ireland qualifiers. Keeper Niall Morgan, who has made such an impact in his debut season in senior Inter County football, was stretchered off in the first half of his club’s game with Derrytresk this afternoon.

Morgan, who plays midfield for his club, sustained a knee injury and was taken to hospital to have it checked out but fears are that he may have damaged his cruciate ligament . It would be a major blow to Tyrone if he is ruled out of the  qualifiers after his impressive displays in 2013. It would also leave manager Mickey Harte with only one recognised keeper in Pascal McConnell after John Devine announced his retirement from inter county football a couple of months ago.

Twenty four hours earlier Dermot Carlin had to go off in the opening minute of Killyclogher’s win over Eglish and it is feared that he has sustained a broken nose again. Carlin, who came on for PJ Quinn in the Ulster championship defeat by Donegal four weeks ago, received a broken nose and had to go off in that game.

He had an operation to fix it and last week returned to Tyrone training with a protective mask on it. Saturday night was his first game back since then and the game was only sixty seconds old when he had to go off again and he will visit hospital again today.  This latest setback leaves him a severe doubt for the rest of the summer and further weakens Tyrone’s defensive options after PJ Quinn opted out of the panel last week.
