Goalkeeper Niall Morgan fears Tyrone could be "absolutely destroyed" if they are not at their best against Donegal in Sunday's Ulster Championship clash.

Morgan, having a superb year as the Red Hands number one, believes Donegal have been preparing for this one game since the draw was made back in October.

"The fact that they were relegated means absolutely nothing," said Morgan.

"They are All-Ireland champions and all they have been talking about is playing Tyrone on 26 May."

Morgan has made quite an impact since giving up Irish League football with Dungannon Swifts to take up the challenge of inter-county GAA.

He is not just a shot-stopper, though, as he has landed an impressive tally of scores from the 45-metre line.

"The last couple of months have changed my life," said the Edendork player.

"At the moment it is working out for me - I just hope it continues."

Tyrone manager Mickey Harte believes preparations have gone well ahead of the Ballybofey showdown.

"We had a good league campaign, but everybody steps up a gear for the Championship.

"Donegal are a formidable force and they have out their focus on this game.

"We believe we have improved as the season has gone on.

"If we can reach a new level I think we will not be in a bad place.

"We want to win every competition we are in - you strive for that.

"We treasure the Ulster Championship and we want to get that title back."
