TYRONE BOSS MICKEY Harte has changed things up with two personnel and several positional switches as they go in search of their first Allianz Football League win of 2019 this weekend.

The Red Hand welcome Mayo to Healy Park on Sunday [throw-in 2.30pm] as they look to get their Division 1 campaign up and running after an opening round loss to Kerry.

All-Ireland final starter Kieran McGeary and early substitute Lee Brennan both start in the forward line while Galbally defender Liam Rafferty and Ardboe’s David Mulgrew are the two that make way.

In the positional changes, Michael McKernan and Peter Harte both drop further back, with Niall Sludden starting on the 40 this time. Eoghan Ruadh attacking ace Cathal Mc Shane takes over at full-forward.

All-Ireland final substitutes Frank Burns and Ronan O’Neill return to the bench while Mulgrew and 18-year-old Darragh Canavan miss out this week.
