Here is all the information you need for Saturday’s Ulster Football quarterfinal clash between Tyrone and Cavan
The game will be shown on Sky Sports from 16:30 at Healy Park on Saturday, 10th July.
Tyrone had a relatively good league campaign finishing ahead of Armagh and Monaghan in the Roinn 1 North.
After finishing second in their group, they were heavily defeated by Kerry, this should not deter them from trying to reclaim the Ulster title this year.
In wing forward, Kieren McGeary will be the player to look out for, he is fast and well able to slot over points for his team.
Similar to Tipperary in Munster, Cavan was the surprise package, winning the Ulster championship last year. The league did not treat them so well with a loss to Wicklow leaving them relegated from Roinn 3.
All-Star Thomas Galligan has still shown that he is a great footballer throughout the county’s rough patch, they will need another classy performance in midfield to get a victory.
Both sides have known and prepared for this fixture since the end of April. This will be both their first competitive matches in a few weeks so expect some nervous tension to surround this match.

In predicting this match, it is hard to overlook how poor Cavan’s league campaign was. Their confidence is going to be really low.
Expect Tyrone to take this opportunity to beat the reigning champions by more than three points.
