KILDARE HAVE NAMED a new full-forward line for Sunday’s Leinster quarter-final against Laois as they seek to bounce back from April’s Division 2 league final defeat to Galway.

Manager Cian O’Neill has brought David Slattery, Daniel Flynn and Cathal McNally into his attack for the tie in Tullamore.

Slattery and McNally both came on as substitutes in the league decider with Ben McCormack, Chris Healy and Fionn Dowling the players to make way.

McCormack misses out due to injury as does fellow forward Neil Flynn.

They are the only changes to the Lilywhites side while Laois are unchanged from their opening round provincial success against Longford.
