TYRONE ARE UNCHANGED for their all-Ulster All-Ireland quarter-final against Armagh on Saturday evening.

Red Hand skipper Sean Cavanagh will equal the all-time championship appearances, for a couple of hours at least, when he plays his 88th game for the county.

Cavanagh will move level with Stephen Cluxton and the O Sé brothers, Tomás and Marc, before Cluxton advances to 89 appearances once Dublin-Monaghan throws-in on Saturday night.

Tyrone face Armagh at 4pm before Dublin host Monaghan at 6pm. Both games take place in Croke Park.
