Cunningham Positive After Tyrone Draw

Anthony Cunningham took the positives from the 1-10 each draw with Tyrone, even though chances of a last gasp win were denied.

In the game’s final play, referee Noel Mooney called a foul on Gary Patterson, having the substitute a tap-over free.

However the free was overturned by the Cavan ref, after consultation with his umpire as Tyrone keeper, Niall Morgan lay on the ground holding his head.


Roscommon had led 1-10 to four points before Tyrone fought back for a draw, the Roscommon boss was however focused on the positives.

“They’re a top class team, beaten All-Ireland finalists and you learn so much and our lads have learnt so much from playing Tyrone.”

“Under a lot of pressure and we really stood up to the elements and the physicality of Tyrone and we came out with flying colours and there was really something to work on.”

“For us its progress and we can kick on for Sunday week” added Cunningham.

The draw see’s Cunningham’s side sit on three points from six, effectively a victory away from safety in division one, Cunningham admitted a draw was disappointing.

“We always wanted to maximise the points from every game we’re in” explained Cunningham. It’s a massively competitive league, there’s nothing between any of the teams really.”

“We have to keep going the way we’re going and its massive preparation for the championship, that’s our focus.”
