THE MAYO AND Dublin sides for their All-Ireland semi-final showdown at Croke Park this evening have been named [throw-in 5pm, live on RTÉ 2 and Sky Sports Arena].

James Horan has made two changes to the Westerners’ starting team that beat Donegal last weekend with Kevin McLoughlin and Fergal Boland both starting. 

Jason Doherty — who suffered a gut-wrenching ACL injury last time out — and Keith Higgins are the players to make way.

Dublin have also confirmed their side for the all-important clash with David Byrne, Cian O’Sullivan and Michael Fitzsimons forming the full-back line. Brian Fenton and Michael Darragh MacAuley start in midfield.

A leaked image of the programme sees Diarmuid Connolly make the bench with Bernard Brogan, Rory O’Carroll and Eoghan O’Gara missing out — but there’s been no official confirmation of the 26-man squad from Jim Gavin’s camp.

It also shows Philly McMahon and Jonny Cooper held in reserve.
