DUBLIN U21′S HAVE made one change to their team ahead of their EirGrid Leinster final against Kildare tonight.

Cormac Costello starts at full forward instead of Killian O’Gara, who is sidelined with an ankle injury.

Kildare have kept faith with the team that defeated Meath in their semi-final clash last time out. The Lilywhites have also disposed of Offaly so far in this campaign.

The Dubs have claimed victories over Laois and Longford on their way to the final, which takes place in Páirc Tailteann, Navan at 7.30pm tonight.
