Canavan gets the nod for Tyrone

Skipper Peter Canavan has given Tyrone fans a huge boost by declaring himself fit enough to start against Armagh in Sunday's All-Ireland football final at Croke Park.

Skipper Peter Canavan has given Tyrone fans a huge boost by declaring himself fit enough to start against Armagh in Sunday's All-Ireland football final at Croke Park.

Canavan limped out of their semi-final win over Kerry with serious ankle damage but has worked around the clock to recover in time and takes his place as usual at full-forward.

Meanwhile, right corner-back Ciaran Gourley has shaken off a shoulder complaint to line out though Stephen O'Neill, who scored three points as a sub against Kerry, remains on the bench.

Tyrone (SF v Armagh):

J Devine; C Gourley, C McAnallen, R McMenamin; C Gormley, G Devlin, P Jordan; K Hughes, S Cavanagh; B Dooher, B McGuigan, G Cavlan; E McGinley, P Canavan, O Mulligan.
