The game kicks off at 7:45pm.
After several years struggling with the Swifts, it now seems United have overcame those woes, they haven't lost to the Tyrone side since February 2021, and the last defeat at Stangmore Park was in March 2020. Nothing will be taken for granted though, and the players will have to show the effort and determination they have in the latest two wins. Make your way to Stangmore and be loud and proud in support of YOUR team - Come On Sky Blues!
