Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has named a strong team for Wednesday night’s Dr McKenna Cup Section A fixture against Queen’s University (throw-in 8pm).

Two-time All-Star full-back Neil McGee makes his first start of the year having made a second half cameo appearance in the 1-10 to 0-11 win over Armagh on Sunday.

The Gaoth Dobhair defender comes in for St Eunan’s Eamon Doherty, while Michael Boyle is replaced in goal by Paul Durcan.

There will be two Glenswilly men at centre-field with Neil Gallagher and Gary McFadden, both of whom impressed from the bench on Sunday coming in for Rory Kavanagh and Matthew Smyth from Killybegs. Antoin McFadden is likely to play the sweeper role that was filled by Thomas McKinley against Armagh and Martin O’Reilly in the 0-13 to 1-17 reversal against Tyrone.

Donegal: Paul Durcan; Declan Walsh, Neil McGee, Eamon McGee; Frank McGlynn, Leo McLoone, Karl Lacey; Neil Gallagher, Gary McFadden; Antoin McFadden, Dermot Molloy, Odhran MacNiallais; Colm McFadden, Michael Murphy, Darach O’Connor.
