Dubs unchanged for quarter-final tilt

Dubs unchanged for quarter-final tilt

Dublin manager Pat Gilroy has opted for no changes in personnel for tomorrow's All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Tyrone at Croke Park (throw-in 4pm).

However, there are a number of positional switches in the Dubs' starting line-up, as they aim to reach their first All-Ireland semi-final since 2007.

Michael Fitzsimons and Philip McMahon have swapped positions in the full-back line, with Fitzsimons now positioned on the right.

There is a similiar move in the half-backs with Kevin Nolan on the right, and Barry Cahill named on the left wing.

Ross McConnell and Michael Darragh Macauley, who both picked up injuries in the win over Louth last weekend, continue at midfield.

Up front Alan Brogan has been named at centre-forward, and will be flanked by Niall Corkery and Bryan Cullen, with the latter having kicked three points from play against Louth.

Team captain David Henry has been listed at right corner forward, with Eoghan O'Gara, the two-goal hero against Louth, retained at full-forward and Bernard Brogan at top of the left.

Dublin and Tyrone have met five times in the Championship - all since 1984 - with the Dubs winning in 1984 and 1995 and Tyrone triumphing in 2005 and 2008. There was also a draw in 2005.

The sides' last competitive clash was in the National League in April when the Dubs won by 2-14 to 1-11 in Omagh, courtesy of a strong finish.

DUBLIN (SFC v Tyrone): S Cluxton; M Fitzsimons, R O'Carroll, P McMahon; K Nolan, G Brennan, B Cahill; R McConnell, MD Macauley; N Corkery, A Brogan, B Cullen; D Henry (capt), E O'Gara, B Brogan.
