Connor McAliskey says there will be "two crucial points up for grabs" when Tyrone and Donegal lock horns on Saturday night.
Beast-from-the-East-permitting, the Ulster neighbours are due to renew their keen rivalry in a vital Division One clash in Omagh this weekend, with both teams seeking what would be only their second win of the campaign:
"Ourselves and Donegal are both sitting with only two points in the league and we don't need any extra motivation to play them," the Clonoe clubman told The Irish Daily Star.
"It is a derby game and it is a massve game, especialy after they beat us recently in the McKenna Cup final. We will have to come out of the blocks from the start as there are two crucial points up for grabs and we need to get them."
