They’ve an odd and impressive winning run at MacHale Park and haven’t lost at the venue since 1992.
The Red Hands will be hoping to maintain that record this evening, but the form of both teams would suggest they could be in for a difficult game in what is their third trip to Connacht in Division One so far.
The 2021 All-Ireland champions have already lost out to Roscommon and Galway this season with their one win against Donegal in Omagh coming in round two.
Unlike other leading counties, Tyrone didn’t start their campaign without a handful of their key players through injury or club commitments so their inconsistent form has to be a concern for managers Feargal Logan and Brian Dooher.
In stark contrast, Kevin McStay’s Mayo delivered the performance of the season so far with their facile 2-14 to 1-10 win over All-Ireland champions Kerry last Saturday night.
Another victory would all but guarantee Mayo’s Division One status for another season and deepen Tyrone’s relegation worries so the stakes are high in Castlebar this evening.
