Cassidy not worried

Things will start to happen for Tyrone once they get that elusive first win under their belts, midfielder Aidan Cassidy insists.

The Red Hands are rooted to the bottom of the Division 1 table with no wins from three games. And another defeat to table-toppers Cork this weekend would leave Mickey Harte's side facing an almost impossible struggle to avoid relegation.

But Cassidy is certain that Tyrone are capable of turning the season around, starting with Saturday's clash with Cork.

"It's going to be a massive game, but I know the players will be up for it, and we're hoping we can get those points that will kick-start the season for us.

"I think it's all about getting that first win and then the confidence will grow.

"We just haven't got that bit of luck do date. The luck has deserted us, but it will come in time, I'm sure."

Tyrone face a difficult run-in towards the end of the league, with Galway, Kerry and Dublin on the cards and Cassidy accepts that it won't be easy.

"We have three games in the next three weeks, so they will tell the tale. We're sitting at the bottom with no points and not too many people would have predicted that at the start of the year."
