Donegal were without the likes of Ryan Cunningham, Shane Gillespie and Michael Statham, as well as long-term injury victim Ronan Doherty.
“We’ve been honest and fair to everyone and we’ve paid for that,” McDaid told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub after the game.
“Sometimes you reap what you sow. They’re huge losses.”
Tyrone kicked six points in a row in the first half while a McAleer goal early in the second half propelled them to a deserved win.
McDaid said: “We fought right to the end again. We won the last quarter and I can’t fault their effort. They always go to the end.
“When they hit six in a row, it was very hard to come back and that was probably a turning point in the game.”
