NORTH WEST DERBY ON SUNDAY

The superb facilities at Clanabogan, home of Drumragh Sarsfields will play host to the visit of Donegal for Tyrone’s third Bord Gais national league fixture this term. The Sunday fixture will be Tyrone’s biggest test to date, the all Ireland Intermediate champions have racked up big scores in their opening two games, both Galway and Laois well beaten, nine goals scored in the two games as they have closed out games.

Martina Dillon had a worrying week with a host of her players involved in colleges football, the O’Connor cup qualifiers played midweek. Add to that a glut of injuries to experienced players and Tyrone will have another reshuffled look about them, that’s the way its going to be admitted Dillon,

“ We have been trying to mix in the new players with the experienced, its tricky as we are trying to get league points on the board, we aim to remain in the top flight and we are well aware we need to get a couple of wins, I think we are starting to get the mix right, but its better to be going the right way building up to the championship, some of the other teams are flying now, I’d prefer to be hitting them right notes at championship time”

On the plus side several players played well in the O’connor cup, Neamh Woods played through the pain barrier for Jordanstown as they beat UL , Chriatiane Hunter returned from club commitments to have a steady showing against the Limerick side while Shannon Quinn played well for DCU. Roisin Rafferty though is out of the weekend tie after a head injury last week, it ruled her out of college action.

Tyrone’s clash with Donegal will have an added twist on Sunday, league points are up for grabs ok but the sides will meet again in the Ulster senior championship at the start of the Summer,

“ It adds to the league game alright, we want the points and will be setting out to do that on Sunday however its important too with the championship later in the year, we want to put in a good performance and don’t give them any advantage”

New captain Neamh Woods jarred her ankle last week but did play for Jordanstown, she will have a fitness check on Sunday morning. Long term absentees, Maura Kelly, Lynda Donnelly and Sarah Connolly all remain out of the picture. Dillon and Quinn will consider their options ahead of Sundays game, the management duo are expected to continue their rotation of players in this league campaign.
