ANDY MORAN IS fit to captain Mayo in Saturday’s pivotal Division 1 clash against Dublin in Croke Park (7pm).

Last year’s All-Ireland finalists are level on points with two rounds remaining and a win for either in this penultimate game would be a significant boost in the race for the semi-final places.

Moran replaces Mickey Sweeney at corner-forward while James Horan’s only other change sees Tom Cunniffe return at corner-back for his first start of the season following his run to the AIB All-Ireland club final with Castlebar Mitchels.

Dublin will name their team after training on Friday night.

MAYO (SF v Dublin): Rob Hennelly (Breaffy); Tom Cunniffe (Castlebar Mitchels), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Brendan Harrison (Aghamore); Lee Keegan (Westport), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Colm Boyle (Davitts); Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole); Andy Moran (capt, Ballaghderreen), Alan Freeman (Aghamore), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber).
