Tyrone need fast start against Dublin, says McManus


Tyrone need to make a strong start against Dublin in Sunday's All-Ireland SFC final, according to Monaghan forward Conor McManus.

Mickey Harte's side slumped to a 12-point defeat to Dublin in last year's All-Ireland semi-final, but have a decent overall record against the three-in-a-row Sam Maguire winners since 2013.

In their last five league meetings before Dublin's five-point win league win in Omagh in February, Dublin had won two matches by a single point, Tyrone had won one by a single point, and the other matches had ended in a draw.

"They're going to have to stop Dublin getting off to a quick start," McManus, who was a member of the Monaghan team that lost to Tyrone in the semi-final, told the Irish Sun.

"If you're playing catch-up with Dublin in Croke Park for 60 minutes, it's a long day.

"I think, first and foremost, they're going to have to make it competitive to half-time.

"And whatever they spring after that, be it subs or whatever approach they take, they're definitely going to have to keep things tight in the first half and not let the game get away from them.

"They'll not need anybody to tell them that.

"They played Dublin in the semi-final last year and the game was over at half-time, so they'll know that themselves."
