Roscommon in crucial game

This Sunday Roscommon hurlers face a crucial National Hurling League Division 3A game when they face Tyrone in Omagh (Throw-in at 3.30pm). Roscommon will be without three of the players that started in the win over Longford at Dr. Hyde Park in the last round. Michael Mulry (flu), Thomas Lennon (virus) and Shane Sweeney (ankle) have all been ruled out but Roscommon manager David McConn says that they have a big panel of players and there are plenty of lads to come in.   ‘We have a lot of players on the panel so we will re-jigging the team after the last day and the injuries gives us a chance to look at other players’ he told The People this week.    ‘This is a vital game and Tyrone will be really up for this one as they have two big wins already in this division. This could decide who gets promoted, even at this early stage. We are hoping to play well and squeeze through but it will not be easy’ he continued.    ‘We are still very much at the development stage with this team and are just getting to know each other. We played Kiltormer in a challenge game last weekend and it was a very valuable exercise. We are only in the very early stages yet but so far so good’ he concluded.
