Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has made four changes to his side for Saturday's All-Ireland SFC third round qualifier against Armagh in Omagh (throw-in 7pm).

Defender Martin Swift and midfielder Kevin Hughes both return from injury, replacing Dermot Carlin and Aidan Cassidy respectively.

Justin McMahon makes way for Seán O'Neill in the half-back line, and the final change in personnel sees Tommy McGuigan start at top of the right in place of Martin Penrose.

The hamstring injury that Stephen O'Neill aggravated in training rules him out, while fellow forward Owen Mulligan is part of an extended bench after his return to training in recent days.

Two-time All-Ireland winning captain Brian Dooher has also been kept in reserve for this meeting of the Ulster heavyweights, the winners of which will face Roscommon on Saturday week.

TYRONE (SFC v Armagh): Pascal McConnell; Martin Swift, Joe McMahon, Ryan McMenamin; Sean O'Neill, Conor Gormley, Philip Jordan; Kevin Hughes, Sean Cavanagh; Colm Cavanagh, Brian McGuigan, Peter Harte; Tommy McGuigan, Mark Donnelly, Kyle Coney.

Substitutes: John Devine, Dermot Carlin, Aidan Cassidy, Brian Dooher, Davy Harte, Cathal McCarron, Aidan McCrory, Enda McGinley, Niall McKenna, Justin McMahon, Ronan McNabb, Stephen McNally, Patrick McNiece, Owen Mulligan, Martin Penrose, Jonathan Curran, PJ Quinn.
