Ballina Stephenites player Padraig O’Hora, Kilmaine’s Oisin Mullin and Westport’s Eoghan McLaughlin all come in to start in defence. The game will mark a full debut for McLaughlin after he came off the bench last time out in Navan.

There are two recognisable names brought into their attack with Darren Coen set for his first start of the season and Kevin McLoughlin also drafted in. Introduced as a half-time substitute against Meath, McLoughlin proved the match-winner as he struck 1-2 in the second half to help fashion their 1-9 to 2-5 victory.
