Tyrone chiefs planning ahead as Bradley gets set to serve ban
Tyrone County Board officers are making plans ahead of this weekend's Allianz League clash with Monaghan, should inclement weather upset the fixture.
Last Sunday's league game against Cavan was called off after referee David Gough inspected the waterlogged Healy Park pitch, just over an hour and a half before throw-in with around 100 spectators present.
With more rain forecast through to tomorrow night, contingency plans are afoot to move the game to Carrickmore, Dungannon, Edendork or Pomeroy.
Meanwhile, Mark Bradley is serving his one-match suspension from the red card awarded against Dublin, as Tyrone named an unchanged team from the one to face Cavan ahead of the visit of Malachy O'Rourke's men.
