Tyrone attacker Mark Bradley says the Red Hands have their work cut out in the first round of their Ulster SFC title defence against Monaghan next month.
Speaking to The Irish News, the Killyclogher clubman says they'll have to knuckle down over the next five weeks ahead of the Farney men's visit to Omagh on May 20th.
''Monaghan have been flying during the league and they really look as though they have stepped it up from last year and they look like the toughest opponent in Ulster at the minute, so we have our work cut out and we are going to have to do a lot of work now in the next month or so," said Bradley.
''Monaghan were the first team to beat Dublin in a long time, so we have it all to do.
''They are a formidable side that are packed with super footballers and have been one of the top sides in Ulster for the past number of years.
''Conor McManus is one of the best forwards in the country and with him around you always have to be on your guard."
