Harte not happy with performance

 

Tyrone 2-9 Fermanagh 0-7:Vintage Tyrone it certainly wasn’t. And no-one knew that better than Mickey Harte, who expressed a little disappointment that his players didn’t make a better fist of things in yesterday’s Dr McKenna Cup semi-final.

With the snow falling hard in Armagh, Tyrone made heavy weather of it and needed goals at the end of each half from Plunkett Kane and Mark Donnelly to get beyond a well-organised Fermanagh team.

Tyrone went 25 minutes without scoring in the second-half and the goals, which flew past the appropriately named Erne goalkeeper Chris Snow, masked over the disappointing performance.

Mickey Harte described it as “as poor a performance as I have witnessed in a long time. The performance was not even patchy – we are very much flattered by the scoreline.

“We are in a final and we are not relieved at all because we are looking for performances at this time of year and our performance was not good today.”

After sparkling in the earlier games in this competition, this was a wake-up call for some of Tyrone’s new faces.
