Tyrone manager Mickey Harte will get an opportunity to assess some familiar faces and run the rule over emerging talent when Dromore and Cookstown clash in tonight's W J Dolan senior football championship semi-final at Healy Park, Omagh (8.15).
Both teams have shown impressive form to date with Dromore perhaps in pole position to land the title having come close to annexing the crown in recent seasons.
Ryan McMenamin will spearhead Dromore's drive to reach the decider while Owen Mulligan and Raymond Mulgrew will attempt to tilt the scales in Cookstown's favour.
Mulgrew proved one of the success stories in the Tyrone side this year, his artistry in the centrethreequarters berth and cultured finishing underlining the extent to which he has matured into a key member of Mickey Harte's squad.
Mulligan may have had a relatively quiet county campaign by his own standards but he is still a proven matchwinner, a player who can effectively turn the course of a game.
Tonight Cookstown will lean heavily on his experience and craft as they bid to continue what has been a lively championship itinerary to date.
On Sunday, Coalisland, a youthful, vibrant side take on Donaghmore in what promises to be a titantic battle at O'Neill Park, Dungannon (4.00).
Coalisland include several players who have come up through their Minor ranks lately and into this category come Tiernan O'Hagan, Martin Earley, Jonathan Curran and Kieran Toner.
Donaghmore, who claimed a significant scalp when they knocked out reigning champions Errigal Ciaran at the quarter-final stage, are an amalgam of youth and experience.
Niall McGinn, Damien McCaul and Kelvin Hughes are among their key players while Adrian Cush is still capable of wielding an infuence if called upon.
Richard Hetherington captains the side from his corner forward position while three of his cousins - Mark and Gary Hetherington along with Darren Cush - will also be in the side.
Joe Faloon has certainly shown his tactical and motivational skills to date in his role as Donaghmore manager and is confident that his side can book their place in the final on Sunday.
But Coalisland's fire and ambition certainly burn brightly. The team have underlined their intention to upset the status quo in Tyrone with some fine displays lately and their potent attack will ask big questions of the Donaghmore defence.
The influence of Peter Donnelly and the McNeice brothers will prove valuable assets for the 'Island who have shown a ferocious work-rate so far.
For Mickey Harte, the two semi-finals will represent an opportunity to commence the process of analysing the range of talent at his disposal as he gets down to the serious business of plotting what he hopes will prove a third All Ireland crown for the O'Neill County.
