The Donegal team to face Tyrone in Sunday's Ulster Football Championship quarter-final is the exact same XV that started last year's All-Ireland final against Mayo.

Key trio and current All Stars, Karl Lacey, Mark McHugh and Frank McGlynn have all recovered from injury setbacks and will line out in Ballybofey.

Earlier this week, Lacey declared his readiness for the clash after undergoing hip surgery. He told RTÉ Sport. "I've been training hard and it is feeling good. Jim (McGuinness) has given us a game plan to do, we have been working on our fitness and it is up to us as players to execute that to the best of our ability. If we do that, hopefully it will be good enough."

McGlynn and McHugh have had hamstring problems, but are deemed fit enough to start at No 7 and No 10 respectively.

Donegal: Paul Durcan; Paddy McGrath, Neil McGee, Eamon McGee; Anthony Thompson, Karl Lacey, Frank McGlynn; Neil Gallagher, Rory Kavanagh; Mark McHugh, Leo McLoone, Ryan Bradley; Paddy McBrearty, Michael Murphy, Colm McFadden.
