Five changes for Tyrone27/04/2012 - 10:46:46
Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has made five changes to his team for Sunday's Allianz League Division 2 final against Kildare at Croke Park (throw-in 2pm).
The most notable switch sees Conor Gormley come in for just his second start of the season. He is listed at full-back in place of the injured Justin McMahon, who damaged a hamstring in a recent club game.
Pascal McConnell makes way for Jonathan Curran in goal, with Damian McCaul and Aidan Cassidy taking over from Ryan McMenamin and Michael Murphy at wing back and midfield respectively.
The only change in the Red Hands' attack is the return of Niall McKenna at full-forward. He has been promoted to the starting line-up following the groin injury which has ended top scorer Kyle Coney's season.
The selected team includes only seven members of the side that started Tyrone's 2-11 to 0-12 first round win over Kildare at Croke Park back in February.
Harte's charges are looking to make it eight league victories on the trot, having impressed throughout the group phase. They secured their promotion back to the top flight after five rounds of matches.
TYRONE (AFL v Kildare): Jonathan Curran; Aidan McCrory, Conor Gormley, PJ Quinn; Cathal McCarron, Peter Harte, Damian McCaul; Aidan Cassidy, Colm Cavanagh; Ronan McNabb, Mark Donnelly, Sean Cavanagh; Owen Mulligan, Niall McKenna, Stephen O'Neill (capt).
Subs: Pascal McConnell, Conor Clarke, Ciaran Gervin, Peter Hughes, Jonathan Lafferty, Joe McMahon, Ryan McMenamin, Stephen McNally, Patrick McNiece, Stephen McNulty, Michael Murphy.
