Cavanagh reveals fight for places

Tyrone's Colm Cavanagh

Allianz National Football League
Tyrone v Monaghan
Sunday, Healy Park, 2.30pm

The Red Hands underlined their determination to maintain their 100 per cent winning record when dispatching with Meath with the minimum of fuss last time out. It was another contest where the result essentially was academic to the Micky Harte’s charges but they still set about their task with great vigour and purpose.

Ahead of their final National League game, against Monaghan, Cavanagh revealed that the fierce battle for starting berths within the squad presently helped guard against any signs of complacency.


“It was good to get another win against Meath. We treated that game like a league quarter-final. We have enjoyed a great start to the year and it would be a shame to lose our record now so we want to keep the momentum going.

“We are going out trying to win every single game even having already qualified. There’s a lot of competition for places at the minute, you only have to look at the number on the sidelines pushing to get in. Every man is fighting hard so that means every game is vital in terms of our preparation, whether it matters in terms of the result or not.”
