Tyrone joint-manager Feargal Logan wasn’t making any excuses after his team’s humbling at the hands of Cavan in the Dr McKenna Cup last night.
The Sam Maguire Cup holders were on the receiving end of a 0-5 to 1-17 defeat in Kingspan Breffni Park and Logan hopes it will serve as a “wake-up call” as they continue their preparations for their Allianz FL Division 1 opener against Monday.
“It’s a poor result for Tyrone, but credit to Cavan,” he said to RTE.ie shortly after the final whistle.
“They came at us hard, they were prepared and gave us a bit of a lesson. We’ll have to lick our wounds for the weekend.”
He added: “We’re not long back from a team holiday, and you can make all sorts of excuses, but there is no point doing that when you're soundly beaten. We have to look at ourselves and start again.
“You’d hope it is a bit of a wake-up call, that there’s plenty more in the tank. There is a long year ahead, but it’s not the start we wanted to 2022.”Tweet
