Experienced duo Brian McGuigan and Brian Dooher will start for Tyrone in tomorrow's Ulster SFC semi-final replay with Cavan.

McGuigan, who took All-Star honours in 2003 along with Dooher, is still working his way back to his best following a four-month break in Australia.

Red Hands captain Dooher, who has shaken off an ankle injury, impressed when coming on as a replacement in the drawn game against Cavan and has forced manager Mickey Harte's hand.

McGuigan and Dooher replace Owen Mulligan and Brendan Donnelly in the half-forward line respectively, with Peter Cavan moving from centre forward to the right corner.

Goalkeeper Pascal McConnell is fit to start after a quick receovery from a bruised sternum received in a clash with Cavan's Jason O'Reilly last weekend.

Tyrone are bidding to reach the Ulster final for the fifth time in the last 10 years.

TYRONE (SFC v Cavan): P McConnell; R McMenamin, C Lawn, S Sweeney; D Harte, G Devlin, P Jordan; C Gormley, S Cavanagh; B Dooher (capt), B McGuigan, M Penrose; P Canavan, S O'Neill, E McGinley.
