TYRONE forward Lee Brennan could face a race against time for the Ulster Championship opener with Monaghan after pulling up during Trillick’s 21 point win over Donaghmore on Sunday.
Brennan top scored in the one-sided contest, tagging on 0-9 over 50 minutes, but as he dropped over his ninth point with 10 minutes to go he seemed to tweak a hamstring and was immediately withdrawn from the action. Trillick manager Nigel Seaney said he was unsure of the seriousness of the injury.
“We were not going to take any chances, he looked in some discomfort after he hit the point, he had been going well and there was no problems before the incident. He seemed to injure his left hamstring, there was no-one else involved.
“Lee just hit the point and then signalled he had a problem, I have to say we are not sure just how bad it is. He has been doing a lot lately and it could have caught up on him. It may be only a tweak, but we have to wait and see.”
Brennan was Tyrone’s top marksman in the national league campaign and his loss at this stage with less than a month until the Healy Park opener could be a major setback for Mickey Harte’s side, who already have concerns over the fitness of Colm Cavanagh. And to add to the Red Hand boss’s woes, Brendan Burns suffered what appeared to be a serious ankle injury 10 minutes into Pomeroy’s win over Carrickmore on Friday night.
