Tyrone will be without goalkeeper Niall Morgan for their Allianz National League Division Two final against Cavan on Sunday, April 24.
Morgan broke a bone in his hand while playing club football for Edendork at the weekend — and now faces a race to be fit for the county’s Ulster SFC quarter-final away to Derry in Celtic Park on May 22.
Morgan, who plays out the field for his club, had caught the eye with a seven points haul before sustaining the injury.
After the game, an X-ray at Omagh Hospital confirmed a break and it is believed he could have his hand in a plaster cast for up to six weeks.
Manager Mickey Harte has rotated ‘keepers Morgan and Mickey O’Neill of Clonoe throughout this year and the former was set to feature in the League decider.
