Harte wary of Cork backlash


Mickey Harte is anticipating a tough encounter when Tyrone meet Cork in Saturday's All-Ireland SFC qualifier fourth round tie at O'Moore Park.

The Rebels will be looking to progress beyond the fourth round of qualifiers for the first time in four years when they face Tyrone at the weekend, but they head into the match on the back of a crushing 3-18 to 2-4 provincial decider defeat to Kerry at Pairc Ui Chaoimh last month.

Harte believes Ronan McCarthy's side are much better than their showing in the Munster final and he is expecting them to be fired up when they run out in Portlaoise on Saturday.

"Maybe that's where the sting in the tail is for us, that they will want to kick back with something to raise the standard up to what they know they're capable of playing," Harte is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner. "And if they do that, I think it will take a really good performance to beat them."

“We would have to look more at what they did against Tipperary than what they did against Kerry. They didn’t do themselves justice against Kerry in the final, whereas they had very good form against Tipperary, and we know that Tipperary is no bad team either. So we have to be on our guard.”

Tyrone have never beaten Cork in two previous Championship meetings and Harte believes Saturday will be another difficult game.

“We always found them a difficult team to deal with, so we have to be very conscious of our record against them. It wouldn’t be pretty, and we know that this is the all-important game," he added.
