Former All-Ireland winning captain Brian Dooher will make his first start of the 2010 season, after Tyrone manager Mickey Harte handed him a starting role for this Sunday's Ulster SFC quarter-final against Antrim at Casement Park (4pm).

Dooher will start his 14th Championship campaign for the Red Hands, at right-half-forward; in a line-up which features 11 of the side which lost last year's All-Ireland semi-final to Cork.

Stephen O'Neill, who missed the league with a dislocated elbow, is at full forward and Martin Swift gets a first championship start at corner back.

Justin McMahon has regained full fitness following a hamstring injury and plays at full-back, while Ryan McMenamin lines out in the centre instead of the injured Conor Gormley who misses out because of a knee injury.

In the absence of injured midfielder Aidan Cassidy, Kevin Hughes will line-up at midfield alongside Colm Cavanagh, with Sean Cavanagh listed at centre-half-forward.

TYRONE (Ulster SF v Antrim): P McConnell; M Swift, Justin McMahon, D Carlin; D Harte, R McMenamin, P Jordan; K Hughes, C Cavanagh; B Dooher, S Cavanagh, Joe McMahon; M Penrose, S O'Neill, O Mulligan.
