TYRONE ALL-STAR Mattie Donnelly has been left out of the team to face Dublin, after leaving the pitch with a concussion during last week’s match against Roscommon.

The concussion, which happened 15 minutes in, was Donnelly’s second in seven months, after getting a knock to the head in a club game for Trillick last July.

Peter Harte drops back to the half-back line to cover Donnelly’s absence, while Declan McClure comes in to fill Harte’s position from last week in the half forwards.

Goalkeeper Niall Morgan also returns for the league game against the current All-Ireland champions after being left on the bench for last week’s victory over victory in Omagh.
