PETER HARTE HAS been cleared to play for Tyrone in tomorrow evening’s Super 8s meeting with Roscommon (5pm). 

The influential forward was black-carded late in the Round 4 qualifier win over Cavan last Sunday — his third black card this summer, having already picked up two against Donegal and Longford. 

That meant he was due to receive a one-match suspension that would have saw him miss Saturday’s game at Dr Hyde Park. 

However, Tyrone manager Mickey Harte said afterwards that they were planning to appeal all three of his nephew’s black cards, adding that he would be “disgusted” if Peter wasn’t available. 

At a Central Hearings Committee (CHC) meeting at Croke Park last night, the decision was made to rescind the black card from the win over Longford. 

As a result, Harte is set to line out against the Rossies in his county’s Super 8s opener.
