Tyrone are still seeking their first league win of 2010 after losing by one point to Mayo in the Division One clash at Healy Park in Omagh.

Mickey Harte's men made a good start with points from Aidan Cassidy and Tom Guigan followed by a Ronan McNabb goal.

But Mark Ronaldson, who scored 1-5 overall, netted a penalty after Joe McMahon's foul on Alan Freeman.

Tyrone forged ahead early in the second half but had McMahon sent-off for striking out at Peadar Gardiner.

The Ulster county seemed unhappy with the performance of referee Jimmy White.

But they will have to regroup for an important clash on 7 March with Monaghan who are also pointless after two matches.

Tyrone, a point behind at half-time, looked well set when points from play by Tommy Guigan, Brian McGuigan and Eoin McCusker put them two ahead.

But Mayo, helped by scores from Tom Parsons, Enda Varley and Ronaldson, went four points in front.

After 22 minutes without a Tyrone score, Peter Harte landed a free and further scores from Colm McCullagh and Kevin Hughes reduced the deficit to one.

However, McMahon's late dismissal seemed to take the momentum away from Tyrone and they lost out by the narrowest of margins.
