Darragh Canavan, son of All-Ireland winning captain Peter, has been named at corner back for his Tyrone Allianz Football League debut against Mayo in Castlebar this afternoon (throw-in 2pm).

The Errigal Ciaran attacker missed the championship dress rehearsal with Donegal seven days ago due to U20 commitments but has gone straight into Mickey Harte's starting 15 to face the westerners. 

Brian Kennedy and Peter Harte are also drafted in as part of three changes to the side that started in Ballybofey with Rory Brennan (suspended), Padraig Hampsey and Niall Sludden making way.

Tyrone (Allianz FL Division 1 v Mayo): Niall Morgan; Liam Rafferty, Ronan McNamee, Darragh Canavan; Tiernan McCann, Kieran McGeary, Michael McKernan; Brian Kennedy, Frank Burns; Matthew Donnelly, Conor McKenna, Darren McCurry; Peter Harte, Conall McCann, Conor Meyler.
