5 Key Battles to watch out for Kerry v Tyrone

  1. Tadgh Morley (Kerry) v Cathal McShane (Tyrone) – This promises to be an interesting duel. McShane has been one of the players of the summer so far in m opinion, while Morley has obviously marked some top players over the Super 8’s. If McShane has a good game it could be difficult not to see how he will rack up 3 or 4 points from play as well as 2 or 3 points from frees.

2. Frank Burns (Tyrone) v Sean O’Shea (Kerry) – Burns is a very solid defender, he is also very good at going forward on the counter-attack, whether or not he will get the opportunity to do so on Sunday is another matter as Sean O’Shea is a man in form at the minute and will need watching. He is sure to come in for close attention on Sunday.

3. David Moran (Kerry) v Colm Cavanagh (Tyrone) – Moran had a massive game against Meath last weekend and he has put in some good performances over the Super 8’s also. Colm Cavanagh will likely take up the sweeper role again, but if Kerry were dominating midfield then Tyrone would have no option but to push out.

4. Paul Murphy (Kerry) v Mattie Donnelly (Tyrone) – Two of the speedsters for their respective sides. This could be a physical match up. Both players will not want to give another an inch and whoever wins this battle will go a long way to winning the game. Donnelly was the man of the match in the Tyrone v Cork game.

5. Niall Sludden (Tyrone) v Brian O’Beaglaoich (Kerry) – Sludden has been superb for Tyrone this year he was excellent in the first half against Roscommon and also was good against Cork. O’Beaglaoich, although named at centre back against Meath last weekend scored 1-01 which shows he likes to get forward. Sludden will exploit this though if he gets forward to much.
