This Sunday in Clones Donegal and Tyrone will clash in the second semi final of the Ulster Senior Football Championship. Both counties have named their starting line ups for the game where the prize for the winners will be a place in the provincial decider against Derry. The Donegal side is the same fifteen that started the quarter-final against Cavan. There are a number of positional changes with Mark McHugh named at centre forward. Teenager Patrick McBrearty is named in the corner although he could feature in the half forward line. Michael Murphy lines out at full forward after having his red card overturned last week. For Tyrone, Manager Mickey Harte has made two changes ahead of the game. Kevin Hughes, who missed the quarter-final win over Monaghan through injury, returns to midfield, taking over from Aidan Cassidy, who has been ruled out by a damaged ankle. Joe McMahon makes his first appearance since suffering a broken jaw in a club game two months ago. He comes in at full-back for Cathal McCarron.
Donegal Manager Jim Mc Guinness says Sunday’s game will be a massive challenge but if they are competitive Donegal will be in with a chance.
