Niall McKenna Tyrone

Niall McKenna Returns at 14.

Mickey O’Neill replaces Niall Morgan in the Tyrone goals, Hampsey, McMahon and McCarron all come in to make up the full back line.

Tyrone come into the game searching for their first win of 2017 after being struck down by Cavan in the season opener last Sunday. While Niall McKenna and Ronan McHugh come in at 14 and 15 respectively.

The game will go ahead if the Healy Park pitch can pass an inspection tomorrow evening with teamtalkmag.com reporting that if the pitch is to be deemed unplayable the game will take place on Sunday at another Tyrone venue.

The Healy Park pitch came under scrutiny last year when the replay of the Tyrone Senior County Final had to be postponed at the final hour with the pitch waterlogged due to heavy rain.

However, the game is scheduled to take place in Healy Park with a throw in time of 7pm.

The Tyrone Team is as follows;

1 – Mickey O’Neill – Cluain Eo
2 – Pádraig Hampsey – Oileán a’Ghuail
3 – Justin McMahon – An Omaigh
4 – Cathal McCarron – An Droim Mór
5 – Ronan McNabb – An Droim Mhór
6 – Tiernan McCann – Coill an Chlochair
