Casey faces race against time as Tyrone win in Leitrim

Lorcan Devlin clears his lines for Tyrone

TYRONE are 70 minutes away from  Croke Park and an appearance in the Nicky Rackard Cup final, following this high-scoring win over Leitrim at Carrick-on-Shannon.
The Red Hands hit form on a balmy afternoon, the only negative aspect of their 11 points success, a knee injury picked up by ace attacker Damien Casey.
And with just a week to recover ahead of next weekend’s semi-final clash with Warwickshire, Casey, who went off early in the second half after scoring 1-5, has little time to prove his fitness.
Aidy Kelly scored the other Tyrone goal late on, and while manager Mattie Lennon was delighted with the big score-line racked up by his side, he will be somewhat concerned by the concession of 2-14.

THE scramble for tickets is yet to begin in earnest, but we can already surmise a few things ahead...
