Harte determined to take a positive view

January 21, 2008
Tyrone football boss Mickey Harte says the O'Neill County must try and look at the bright side in the aftermath of the revelation that ace attacker Stephen O'Neill could miss the entire season because of injury. Complications have set in for O'Neill as he seeks to make his rehabilitation to a close following knee surgery. O'Neill was informed this week that surgery combined with a special programme of physiotheraphy haven't had the desired effect. "It's something that we have to get on with," said Harte. "But it is very disappointing for Stephen. Initially the set of exercises designed to help with the rehabilitation of the knee looked to be going well. "Now a new set of problems have appeared and we need to try and get to the source of the problem. It's difficult for all concerned but we must take a positive attitude."
