Tyrone clash to come too soon for McManus

Monaghan forward Conor McManus is unlikely to be fit to face Tyrone on Sunday.

The 2013 All Star has tried a variety of treatments – including cryotheraphy and a visit to herbalist Sean Boylan, as well as a Donegal faith healer – in a bid to recover from an ankle injury, but he accepts that time is running out.

"I'll see where I can get to this week with it. I'd imagine it'll probably come too soon but I'll not give up trying just yet," he said.

"I think I've exhausted every avenue at this stage. When I got the injury first it was six weeks to the championship and it was just a matter of trying everything and anything that could possibly help me in terms of healing or heading in the right direction. It was a no-brainer. It was just a case of trying whatever you could."

McManus, who could take his place on the bench, expects to be fully fit in a fortnight's time when the Farney men will either be in the qualifiers or in an Ulster semi-final against Armagh.

"You'd like to push it but if you're going to be there and declare yourself fit when in your own heart you know you're not, you're no good to the team.

"You have to get the balance right somewhere along the line."
