Donegal hammered Mickey Harte’s side in the Allianz National League a few months back and Tyrone were eventually relegated to Division Two.With a number of players opting off the Tyrone panel since their relegation all would seem not well in the camp. However, Tyrone U21’s winning the All-Ireland title has given the county a badly needed shot in the arm.Canavan was part of the Tyrone U21 set-up and the former All-Ireland winner believes that Tyrone will relish being the underdog and says they find themselves in unfamiliar territory after being written off by all critics ahead of Sunday’s match.Canavan told The Irish Sun, “Tyrone are going into this game in a position they haven’t been in too often, going into a first round of the championship being written off.“Donegal are hot favourites. They gave Tyrone a mauling in the National League. So Tyrone know what to expect. “All the expectation is on Donegal. So Tyrone could be a tough nut to crack.ULSTER SFC COUNTDOWN: CANAVAN – “TYRONE WILL RELISH THE TAG OF UNDERDOGS” was last modified: May 13th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAnewsPeter CanavanSportTyronelast_img
