Mickey Harte's Tyrone withstood a late Roscommon comeback to eek out a 0-12 to 1-7 win at Dr Hyde Park this evening.

Roscommon restored their pride after their embarrassing defeat to Mayo with a spirited display that just fell short.

It took 16 minute for either side to score with Conor Devanney sending over a free but Sean Cavanagh cancelled that out.

Niall Collins and Mark Donnelly traded points before Conor Devanney struck for a fine solo goal to the delight of the home crowd.

Tyrone ended the half with three unanswered points from Darren McCurry, Mark Donnelly and Conor McAliskey.

Joe McMahon could have had a goal in the final stages of the half but his effort was brilliantly saved but the sides were level at 1-2 to 0-5 at the break.

A quartet of points from Darren McCurry on the resumption had Mickey Harte's men in front were added to by further scores by Martin Penrose and Sean Cavanagh.

Kevin Higgins and Cathal Cregg opened Roscommon's second half account.

Boosted by a boisterous home crowd Donie Shine and Cregg raised further white flags to put two points between the sides with eight minutes remaining.

Roscommon tried desperately to close on Tyrone but kicked three wides in a row and Tyrone held on for a two-point win.
