Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has made three changes to the team that beat Louth for Sunday’s qualifier meeting with Armagh

Kyle Coney and Niall McKenna come in for Shay McGuigan and Stephen O’Neill, while Justin McMahon returns to the starting line up in place of the injured Peter Harte.

Armagh come into the game fresh from a 1-18 to 1-13 defeat by the reigning Ulster champions last weekend in their Ulster semi-final replay.

Armagh were fairly convincingly beaten in Clones, and manager Paul Grimley will have had a serious job on his hands this week to get his players ready so soon for a challenge as daunting as the one Tyrone will bring.

Down are also in qualifier action against Kildare while Cavan face Roscommon.
