Mickey Harte's Tyrone will have to overcome fellow Ulster county Cavan in the third round of the All-Ireland qualifiers after the pair were drawn together this morning.

The two sides will meet at Croke Park this Saturday in a double-header to decide which team will progress to play the losing provincial finalists for a place in the Super 8s.

Tyrone had an easy job of it against Carlow in the second round to make it to this stage, while Cavan won another Ulster derby against Down in the last round.

In the second game of the double-header, again at Croke Park, Kildare will host Mayo with both games to be shown live on Sky Sports.

Armagh are at home to Clare courtesy of their victory over Sligo at the weekend, while a trip to Leitrim awaits Monaghan thanks to their easy defeat of Waterford.

Leitrim v Monaghan, Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada, 2:30pm

Armagh v Clare, Athletic Grounds, 3pm

Cavan v Tyrone, Croke Park, 5pm
