MICK O’DOWD HAS bulked up the Meath attack by handing Joe Sheridan his first start of the summer.
The Royals are readying themselves for physical war when they meet Tyrone in tomorrow’s Round 4 qualifier in Croke Park.
Sheridan, who has come off the bench in all three Championship games to date, starts at full-forward with Peadar Byrne the man to make way.
Stephen Bray slides over to corner-forward in an attacking reshuffle while young speedster Eamonn Wallace is named at wing-forward.
Elsewhere Meath are unchanged from the team which lost to Dublin in the Leinster final two weeks ago. Tyrone make one change themselves with Ciaran McGinley starting at the expense of Aidan McCrory.
Throw-in is at 7pm.
