Mickey Harte has made one change to his Tyrone side to take on Dublin in this Sunday's All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park.

Wing forward David Mulgrew, who scored 2-1 in a 27-minute cameo off the bench against Armagh in the quarter-final, has been named to start in place of Declan McClure.

Tyrone are looking to book their first All-Ireland final appearance since 2008, when they won Sam Maguire for the third time after beating Kerry in the decider.

Harte's side come into the Dublin game in strong form after blitzing four Ulster opponents en route to the penultimate stage.

Derry were beaten by 11 points, Donegal by nine, Down by eight and Armagh by 18.

The last time Tyrone played Dublin in the championship was 2011, when Pat Gilroy's side won by seven points.
