GAA – McMahon To Return For Tyrone

Tyrone have received a major boost ahead of next weekend’s Qualifier clash with Roscommon.

Full-back Justin McMahon has recovered from a hamstring injury, and is set to return to action at Hyde Park.

McMahon was forced out of the action halfway through the Ulster quarter-final against Armagh, and missed the semi-final defeat to Donegal.

His availability poses a welcome selection dilemma for manager Mickey Harte, who was delighted with the display of 20-year-old Conor Clarke, an impressive deputy against Donegal.

Justin was able to take a full part in training on Thursday night,” said assistant manager Tony Donnelly. “It’s good to see him back and it’s very encouraging.”

Half forward Ronan McNabb is still struggling with a groin problem. He came on as a late substitute last time out, but has since been unable to take a full part in training.

And corner back PJ Quinn, an ever-present during the National League, is in danger of missing a third successive championship game with a knee injury.
