Tyrone boss Mickey Harte says his players must “dig deep” this weekend as they get set to take on Dublin.

The Red Hands welcome the All-Ireland champions to Omagh on Saturday night after suffering a 19-point hammering to Galway last Sunday and also losing star forward Cathal McShane to a dislocated ankle for the next five months.

“That's where it's at, that's life now and we have to go and lick our sores and get ready for Dublin coming to Omagh,” Harte told The Irish News.

“It could be good to get a team like Dublin, it's always good to get quality teams to come and play you in the National League, but we need to really dig deep this week.

“Everybody is very down about the outcome of that game, both the score-line and losing Cathal. That has an awful impact on players who play around him and play with him, and so looking forward to him giving so much of himself again.”
