Tyrone's heavy defeat last night in Kingspan Breffni Park has placed Kieran McGeeney's Armagh side in pole position as his side visit Healey Park this Saturday (1.30pm).

Although the Red Hand county brought in a lot of fresh faces in for their 1-17 to 0-05 defeat at the hands of the Breffni men, the All-Ireland champions - who have an impressive record in the competition - will no doubt be a lot stronger for the visit of their Ulster rivals at the weekend.

Should Armagh win, they will go straight through to the semi-final, but a home win would force a three-way tie with the scenario of scoring difference coming into the equation.

Kieran McGeeney's side will be keen to be involved in the later stages of the McKenna Cup, with a crucial league opener on January 29 against Dublin at Croke Park pending.
