Connor McAliskey returns to the Tyrone squad for Monaghan clash
CONNOR McAliskey has returned to the Tyrone squad for tomorrow’s clash with Monaghan at Healy Park.
The Clonoe forward is back after recovering from breaking his ankle in a club senior championship game in September and he starts on the bench as Mickey Harte makes three changes to his side for the round four clash.
Into the starting 15 come Liam Rafferty, Frank Burns and Richie Donnelly – who starts for the first time this season at midfield.
Padraig Hampsey takes over at centre half-back, Cathal McShane and Kieran McGeary move to the two corner-forward slots and Peter Harte will wear the number 14 jersey.
Also among the subs is Michael Cassidy but there are no places for Conal McCann, Conan Grugan, Ronan O’Neill and Darren McCurry.
Meanwhile, Mayo manager James Horan has made six changes from the side that started the win against Cavan for tomorrow night’s clash with Dublin.
Into the starting 15 come Robbie Hennelly, Brendan Harrison, Colm Boyle, Donal Vaughan, Ciaran Treacy and Brian Reape, while out go David Clarke, Stephen Coen, Michael Plunkett, Diarmuid O’Connor, Evan Regan and Colm Moran.
Keith Higgins captains the side for his 150th senior appearance. His first game for Mayo was also against Dublin, back in 2005.
