Joe McMahon is set to be fit to play for Omagh St Enda's in Sunday's Ulster Club Football Final with Slaughtneil.

The Tyrone star came off injured during his side's semi-final win over St Eunan's but will take his place in the midfield at the Athletic Grounds.

McMahon was forced to watch the nervy latter stages of the three-point 1-8 to 0-8 win over the Donegal champions from the bench.

Omagh are making their first ever appearance in an Ulster club decider.

Slaughtneil are also participating in a provincial final for the first time following a deserved 1-9 to 0-7 victory over Clontibret at the last four stage.

"I got a bit of a bang against Letterkenny but it was just precautionary at the time that I was taken off," McMahon told the Irish News.

"I was training on Friday night and everything feels good."
