MARK Bradley admits Tyrone face a major challenge when they lock horns with Donegal in Ballybofey this evening (Saturday).
Donegal haven’t been beaten in 16 league and championship matches at MacCumhail Park, which was the scene for Tyrone championship defeats in 2013 and 2015.
In fact, last year’s Ulster Final win was the Red Hands’ first championship success over their bitter rivals in five attempts.
Bradley admits Mickey Harte’s team face a serious task.
“It’s a massive, massive game,” said the Killyclogher livewire who scored three stunning points on his return from suspension against Cavan last weekend.
“Donegal have been a pain in Tyrone’s backside, especially down in Ballybofey. It hasn’t been a great hunting ground recently.”
Tyrone leapfrogged Dublin to the top of the table with their seven-point win over Cavan last time out.
