Mickey Harte urges Red Hands to show their ruthless edge

For the first time this season, Mickey Harte has named an unchanged Tyrone side from that which so thoroughly dominated Derry in last weekend's victory in Omagh.

Ahead of their trip to Navan to take on Meath, Harte has urged his side to keep up their winning habit, having achieved a clean sweep in all games and competitions this year, winning the O'Fiaich and Dr McKenna Cups and rising to the top of Division Two.

"If you drop points you are giving people a chance to chase you and to put you to the pin of your collar again," he said. "You don't want to do that, you want to win all your games and that's what we are trying to do."

Harte admits he is wary of the Meath challenge, with the Royals desperate for a win, Mick O'Dowd's men sitting on three points after four games.

He added: "Every team possess different artillery and present a different challenge, so it will be tough in Navan."
