Antrim’s Michael Pollock and Patrick McBride will make their Championship debuts in Sunday’s Ulster SFC quarter-final against Monaghan at Casement Park.

Pollock will link up with St Gall’s club-mate Kevin Niblock and Brendan Herron in the full-forward line.

Saffrons manager Frank Dawson has also given McBride a starting berth in the half-back line.

However, Tomas McCann and Tony Scullion remain absentees in the wake of their high-profile dispute with Dawson.

Veteran goalkeeper Sean McGreevy has been named on the bench after his shock recall to the squad.

The 40-year-old made his Championship debut for Antrim against Donegal in 1993.

Antrim: C Kerr; K O'Boyle (c), R Johnston, A McClean; S Kelly, J Crozier, P McBride; S McVeigh, M Johnston; A Healy, P Cunningham, M Sweeney; M Pollock, K Niblock, B Herron.
