Two changes as Tyrone get set for heavyweight clash against Donegal

MICKEY HARTE MAKES two changes to the Tyrone team as last year’s beaten All-Ireland finalists bid to book their place in another Ulster decider.

Michael McKernan is named to start Saturday’s semi-final against Donegal at corner-back (throw-in 5pm, BBC) and Connor McAliskey gets the nod at corner-forward.

Hugh Pat McGeary and Rory Brennan are the two set to miss out from the starting XV which beat Antrim a fortnight ago.

The Red Hand were provincial champions in 2016 and again in 2017, but their three-in-a-row bid was derailed by Monaghan in the Ulster quarter-finals last year.

Tyrone had their revenge on their northern neighbours before the summer was out, beating Monaghan in the All-Ireland semi-finals before ultimately coming up short against champions Dublin.
