Tyrone without McMahon brothers


Tyrone manager Mickey Harte will be without Justin and Joe McMahon for Sunday's Ulster SFC opener against Derry.

The brothers are not fit enough to be included in the match-day squad, while Rory Brennan has also been ruled out through injury.

Brennan's place at centre-back goes to Niall Sludden, while Peter Harte moves into defence as cover for Justin McMahon. Cathal McShane and Richard Donnelly are named in attack.
