It's been confirmed that Tyrone forward Conor Mc Aliskey has torn his cruciate ligament.

McAliskey did the damage during Sundays Bank of Ireland Dr Mc Kenna cup defeat to Cavan.

It happened around five minutes from the end of the game.

The injury means he'll miss the rest of the season.

The players worst fears were confirmed on Monday after a MRI scan in Belfast.
