Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has digested some of the speculation suggesting that Donegal will hurdle his side on Sunday en route to what would be a third successive Ulster title.

It has not, however, deflected him from pursuing his detailed planning for what will be his team's biggest game of the year to date.

The positive Covid-19 test result for one player, the suspension dilemma in which Rory Brennan currently finds himself and the possible unavailability of Padraig Hampsey and Michael O'Neill provide Harte with unwelcome headaches ahead of what is viewed as one of the most enticing games of the entire championship programme.
