Mickey Harte has confirmed that he will name an experimental Tyrone side for tomorrow night’s Dr McKenna Cup derby against Armagh.

Should the Red Hands win, then they will qualify for the semi-finals and a third outing inside eight days: "We want to be in the semi-final for sure," their long-serving manager told the BBC. "We have to do everything we can to be there but at the same time we have to experiment.

"We have to give players game-time, that's what this competition is for in our eyes. To get new players, give them game time and when you do that you take a gamble.

"You put some seasoned campaigners in there and you put some new faces in and you have to take whatever comes with that. We hope that we'd be strong enough with that kind of mix to make our way through to the semi-final."
