Derry football captain Mark Lynch will miss their big league derby with Tyrone next weekend due to suspension after an unsuccessful appeal hearing.

Mayo's Aidan O'Shea also appealed the black card he received for a challenge on Tyrone goalkeeper Niall Morgan but that was also upheld.

Tipperary hurlers will be without Shane McGrath and Joe O'Dwyer (both injured against Dublin) for tomorrow's NHL clash with Galway so former dual minor star John McGrath, younger brother of Noel, gets a start at top of the left and Michael Breen (Ballina) gets his first league start at wing-back.

Ronan Maher and Conor O'Brien also retain their places which means three of last year's U-21 panel will start

Kilkenny, who gave a lie to their perceived 'transitional' status when they beat Cork first day out, have made just one enforced change to face Dublin, with Geoff Brennan replacing the injured Conor Fogarty, although John Power is a notable addition to their bench.

Dublin have two changes: Simon Lambert replaces the injured Ross O'Carroll at midfield and David Treacy replaces Paul Ryan at corner-forward.

TIPPERARY (SH v Galway) - D Gleeson; C Barrett, P Curran, C O'Brien; M Breen, P Maher, R Maher; K Bergin, G Ryan; D Maher, J Forde, B Maher; J O'Dwyer, S Callanan, J McGrath.
