McNabb will not face Derry

Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has confirmed that Ronan McNabb will play no part in the Ulster SFC opener against Derry on Sunday week.

McNabb damaged his cruciate knee ligament while training with his club Dromore last September and missed Tyrone's Allianz Football League campaign as he continued his rehabilitation.

He is back in full training but Harte admits the May 22 clash will come too soon for the him.

“It is too early to ask him to go from no competitive football, or 20 minutes competitive club football, after being out with a cruciate, to go in to be ready at that level,” said Harte.

“I think it is too much to ask him, but I think he has made wonderful progress, he has really worked so hard to get himself into the condition that he’s in, and I think it’s a great credit to him that he didn’t let the whole escapade let him down. He really went to town on getting ready as fast as he could. I think it’s to his credit that he is.”

Conor Meyler and Conor Clarke are major doubts for the Celtic Park clash, while Justin McMahon and Tiernan McCann could be available after making good progress in their recovery from injury.

"The Omagh men would seem to be challenged to be ready in time, but you couldn’t be definitive on that just now, but there certainly would be a challenge for them,” Harte said at a press briefing.

"The two Conors would probably have more to do than Justy. Justy would have regular injury problems in terms of muscle strains and that, so we’d be hoping that it’s something that we can manage over the next couple of days.

"But the injuries aren’t as bad as speculation would have it at the weekend,” added Harte. “There are always a few injuries when you’re working with a squad of 30-plus players, and when they’re playing rounds of league football, there are always some niggles that come into play."
