Colm Cavanagh has been recalled to the Tyrone team for tomorrow's Ulster Senior Football Championship quarter-final against Antrim.

The two-time All-Star, who came off the bench in the Red Hand's win over Derry, replaces Brian Kennedy in midfield.

Manager Mickey Harte has made a host of positional changes with Padraig Hampsey's switch to centre-half-back seeing Pat McGeary move to corner-back.

Ben McDonnell moves to midfield to partner Cavanagh while Richard Donnelly goes to corner-forward.

Tyrone v Antrim:

1. Niall Morgan (Edendork)
2. Hugh Pat McGeary (Pomeroy)
3. Ronan McNamee (Aghyaran)
4. Michael McKernan (Coalisland)
5. Tiernan McCann (Killyclogher)
6. Pádraig Hampsey (Coalisland)
7. Michael Cassidy (Ardboe)
8. Colm Cavanagh (Moy)
9. Ben McDonnell (Errigal Ciaran)
10. Matthew Donnelly (Trillick)
11. Niall Sludden (Dromore)
12. Frank Burns (Pomeroy)
13. Cathal McShane (Owen Roes)
14. Peter Harte (Errigal)
15. Richard Donnelly (Trillick)

Padraig Nugent gets the nod ahead of Andrew Hasson to start in goal for Antrim.

James McAuley, Patrick McCormick and Kevin Quinn join Nugent in making first Championship starts for the Saffrons.

Antrim manager Lenny Harbinson has lost 16 of his panel since last summer's loss to Offaly in the qualifiers.
