Tyrone boss Mickey Harte has included four National League debutants in his starting line-up to face Ulster rivals Derry at Celtic Park today.

Barry Tierney, Conan Grugan, Shay McGuigan and PJ Lavery all make their first NFL appearances in the Division One curtain-raiser.

Defender Chrissey McKaigue has boosted Derry’s hopes by returning to full fitness for today’s all-Ulster clash.

Manager Brian McIver has announced a strong line-up that shows nine changes from the side that faced Tyrone in the McKenna Cup semi-final two weeks ago - Thomas Mallon, Dermot McBride, Sean Leo McGoldrick, Fergal Doherty, Gerard O’Kane and Emmett McGuckin retain their places.
