Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has stressed that they must refocus for this weekend’s clash against Galway.

A win for the Ulster side could yet help them reach a FL1 final if other results go their way and they go into Sunday’s game against the Tribesmen in a confident mood having defeated Dublin at Croke Park last Saturday.

Nonetheless, Harte stressed to the Ulster Herald that they cannot read too much into the win over Dublin as the clash with Galway will be a totally different game.

“I think you have to be careful, Dublin was a stand-alone game. It’s a good result and you have to be very happy about it, but you can’t make that a template or a foundation,” said Harte.

“Dublin know that they have got a target on their back and teams want to bring out their best against them. That was our incentive – bring your best out because you’re playing against the best.

“To be able to do that again against a team that hasn’t got that reputation, that’s a different challenge, so we have to see how we deal with that challenge now.”
