McIver bemoans 'unlucky defeat'

New Derry manager Brian McIver says his side were unlucky to lose to Tyrone in Sunday's McKenna Cup Section C game at Healy Park.

"It was a great game of football in very difficult conditions and I thought there was nothing between the sides," said McIver after the final whistle.

"It was a good start and I was pleased with aspects of our play, but is only the start of January and we have a lot of work to do," added the Oak Leaf boss.
