Tyrone have made six changes from their win over Kildare for Saturday’s Division One Football League Ulster derby against Monaghan.
Tiaran McCann’s absence is enforced after he suffered a fractured kneecap in the Newbridge win.
Michael McKernan, Ronan McNamee, Kieran McGeary, Colm McCavanagh, Conall McCann and Richard Donnelly are drafted in.
Hugh Pat McGeary, Rory Brennan, Ciaran McLaughlin, Padraig McNulty and Cathal McShane all drop out.
Brennan, McGeary and McNulty are named in the substitutes.
Monaghan manager Malachy O’Rourke has recalled Ryan Wylie to his defence in place of Barry Kerry for the visit of the Ulster champions with Conor McCarthy named on the bench after helping UCD win the Sigerson Cup last weekend.
The two rivals will meet in Castleblaney on Saturday after winning their most recent league matches.
A win could see Monaghan go level on points with Dublin in Division One.
The All-Ireland champions are away to Mayo on Saturday in a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland final.
Also in Division One, Dr McKenna Cup winners Donegal will host Kildare in Ballyshannon on Sunday in the meeting of the only two teams without a point in the top-flight.
Both teams will feel that they should have been off the mark by this stage after they gave good accounts of themselves against Dublin and also suffered narrow defeats in their two other games.
Unbeaten Cavan face Cork trip
Cavan are the only team that remain unbeaten in Division Two and Mattie McGleenan’s side are a point clear of Cork and Down at the top of the standings after their win against Meath.
The Breffni men face a tricky visit to Pairc Ui Chaoimh in a top-of-the-table contest with Gearoid McKiernan and Cian Mackey handed starts after coming off the bench against Meath.
Down will be hoping to keep pace with the top two teams when they host Clare in Newry.
The Mourne County regrouped from the home defeated by Cork three weeks ago to win in Roscommon seven days later and victory on Sunday will put them in a strong position to challenge for promotion.
Bryansford’s Marc Reid is expected to remain in goal for Eamon Burns’ side after impressing following his late call-up for the Roscommon game.
Burns has a strong panel to call upon at the moment with the likes of Kevin McKernan and Niall Madine being unable to command starting roles in recent games.
Connaire Harrison remains suspended after his straight red card against Cork but Donal O’Hare deputised effectively in Roscommon.
Clare, who have drawn two of the opening three games, go into the contest hampered by the absence of suspended duo Jamie Malone and Gordon Kelly who picked up their bans following incidents in the game against Tipperary.
Fermanagh host Derry in Division Three
Fermanagh and Armagh will both aim to maintain their 100% records in Division Three with the Ernemen hosting Derry on Saturday evening and the Orchard men away to bottom team Offaly on Sunday.
Derry had to battle hard to overcome Offaly 1-15 to 0-13 at Celtic Park last weekend as Fermanagh eased to a 0-13 to 0-8 win in Sligo.
Rory Gallagher’s Erne side look in better nick at the moment although there is a sense that Derry have been under-performing thus far in 2018 – even given the absence of their Slaughtneil contingent.
Damian McErlain has named an unchanged starting line-up from last weekend.
Armagh hammered Offaly by 30 points in Division Three last year and while the Leinster county tested Derry last weekend, the Orchard men should be good enough to maintain their winning start to the campaign.
In Division Four, Antrim will be aiming to get back on the winning trail in London after being held by Wicklow at Corrigan Park but the Exiles are no longer the whipping boys in the bottom division.
London drew against Limerick in Ruislip two weeks ago after beating Wicklow by nine points a week earlier.
With Antrim only managing a draw against the Garden County, the Exiles will believe that they are capable of downing the Saffrons.
Antrim boss Lenny Harbinson make two changes in personnel with CJ McGourty and Colum Duffin replacing Niall McKeever and Stephen Beatty while Paddy McAleer switches to midfield because of McKeever’s absence.
