LONGFORD HAVE MADE one change for their Leinster SFC quarter-final replay against Kildare, as Mullinalaghta star Donal McElligott returns to the side from suspension.

Team captain McElligott comes into the half-forward line for his club-mate Gary Rogers, after missing the thrilling extra-time draw last weekend.

He was serving a one-match suspension after receiving a red card during Longford’s Allianz League clash with Westmeath.

Longford boss Padraic Davis has elected to name an otherwise unchanged side for the replay on Sunday in Tullamore [throw-in, 3pm] as they look to clinch a place in the Leinster semi-final against Dublin.

Kildare manager Cian O’Neill is sticking with the same side who played out that exciting draw.

Adam Tyrrell, who finished the game with 1-7, has been named to start again in the full-forward line alongside Paddy Brophy and Neil Flynn.

Kevin Feely and Fergal Conway will partner up in midfield, while David Hyland starts at full-back after hitting four points from play in the drawn game.
