Paul Kerrigan says nothing less than a win will suffice for Cork against Tyrone next weekend.

The Rebels gave it a real go against Dublin last Saturday, but ultimately came up short. It means that they must beat Tyrone when they return to Croke Park on Saturday if they're to have any chance of progressing from the Super 8s.

"They've won (against Roscommon), so it's do-or-die for us, really," the 2010 All-Ireland winning forward told the Irish Daily Mirror.

"And it might be no harm for us to play them again after last year (when Tyrone easily beat Cork in Round 4 of the All-Ireland SFC Qualifiers) because we were all over the shop against them, we just weren't there and they were a level above us.

"But look, we hope to go out and give a really good account of ourselves again. It will be a good mark of our character, of where we've come, if we can give give another good performance. We'll try and get a result, that's the main thing."
