Jim McGuinness has named an unchanged Donegal team to take on Tyrone in the Ulster Championship semi-final in Clones tomorrow (Saturday, 4.30 p.m.)

This means that Ryan Bradley, who did so well against Derry in the enforced absence of Rory Bradley, retains his place alongside Neil Gallagher.

The line up as announced is likely to see positional switches as Frank McGlynn has been named at corner-back but is more likely to play at half-back where he has excelled this year.

Leo McLoone has been named at centre-forward, but as always numbers will probably mean little in the Donegal front line.

Meanwhile despite what was being said in the run-up to the game in the Tyrone camp, Justin McMahon has been named at full full-back in the Tyrone team. McMahon, unable to train fully since being forced out of the last eight win over Armagh with a hamstring injury, is included in an unchanged team.

Half-forward Ronan McNabb has also overcome a groin problem to take his place in the starting line-up.

The winners of the Clones semi-final will play Down in the provincial decider on 22 July.

Tyrone: P McConnell, A McCrory, Justin McMahon, D Carlin, C McCarron, C Gormley, Sean O’Neill, Joe McMahon, C Cavanagh, R McNabb, M Donnelly, P Harte, M Penrose, Stephen O’Neill, O Mulligan.

Donegal: P Durcan; P McGrath, N McGee, F McGlynn; E McGee, K Lacey, A Thompson; R Bradley, N Gallagher; D Walsh, L McLoone, M McHugh, P McBrearty, M Murphy, C McFadden.
