STEPHEN ROCHFORD HAS kept faith with the majority of the side who defeated Kerry in the previous round of the Allianz Football League.

Jason Gibbons replaces Tom Parsons at midfield, while Diarmuid O’Connor comes into attack in favour of Conor O’Shea. Jason Doherty switches to the full-forward line alongside Andy Moran and Cillian O’Connor.

Roscommon boss Kevin McStay has made two changes from the team who suffered a late Round 2 loss to Donegal.

David Murray and Tom Corcoran come into the Rossies’ starting XV as part of a relatively inexperienced outfit at this level.

The game throws-in at Elvery’s McHale Park at 7pm.
