Owen Mulligan: Tyrone great says Red Hands can shock Donegal

“Donegal don’t break in twos and threes…they break in fives and sixes and they complete the run right through to the other forward line.

“But I watched the Donegal and Derry game back again and I’ve seen wee snippets of what Tyrone can do.

“Tyrone have got to follow their men. In the league against the likes of the bigger teams, Tyrone didn’t do that and got punished by goals. But in the second half against Mayo, they were excellent and that’s the way they need to play.”

Mulligan also believes that Ethan Doherty and Paul Cassidy’s long-range point-taking against Donegal is something the Tyrone management will have noted.

“They will take a big plus from Donegal conceding 17 points, long-distance shooting seemed to be an Achilles heel for Donegal last weekend because Ethan Doherty got four from 35 yards out and Paul Cassidy got two points.

“Also I think Joe Oguz should definitely start on Sunday because he changed the game last weekend when he came on. His physicality could be very useful for Tyrone and I would like to see him with Kennedy and Conn in the midfield sector.”

Oguz has been named in the Tyrone starting line-up although he was also initially picked to start against Cavan before Liam Gray, who went on to hit the Red Hands’ goal, was instead preferred.
