TYRONE HAVE MADE two changes to the starting XV who defeated Westmeath in the last round of Allianz National Football League Division I fixtures as they get set to take on Cork this weekend.

Tiernan McCann comes in to the half-back line in place of Conor Clarke with the Omagh St Enda’s player dropping out of the squad altogether due to injury.

The other change sees Darren McCurry, fresh from U21 duty, return to corner forward at the expense of Conan Grugan.

Niall Morgan, Mattie Donnelly and Peter Harte remain the only three members of Mickey Harte’s panel to start every game in this year’s league campaign.
