DONAL VAUGHAN HAS been named at full-back as Mayo managers Noel Connelly and Pat Holmes keep faith with the same XV that started against Dublin last Sunday.

Vaughan picked up a shoulder injury in the drawn game so his inclusion is something of a surprise.

Robert Hennelly and David Drake retain their place in the starting line-up after both were late additions to the XV on Sunday.

Throw-in at Croke Park on Saturday is at 5pm:

1. Robert Hennelly – Breaffy
