Harte faced with a few difficult decisions

Mickey Harte

Tyrone manager, Mickey Harte, has said he's not looking forward to a few difficult decisions which he has to make over the next couple of weeks.

Harte has to cut his squad ahead of the start of the National League - and that means he must deliver some disappointing news to some of his players who have been part of a side that has impressed in the McKenna Cup over the last couple of weeks.

Harte told this morning's Irish Independent that it's very easy to invite players on to a panel, but it's difficult to ask them not to stay.

And he said the players - by their performances - are making those decisions difficult for him.

Tyrone play Fermanagh in their McKenna Cup semi final on Sunday.

Derry play Cavan in Sunday's other semi final and they are likely to make a few changes for the game again - after making 12 changes for their win over Queen's University on Wednesday night.
