Casey faces race against time as Tyrone win in Leitrim

Lorcan Devlin clears his lines for Tyrone

Leitrim…2-14
Tyrone….2-25
 
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.
