THE MONAGHAN TEAM to face Galway in Sunday’s Allianz Football League Division 1 encounter shows three changes from their narrow win over Tyrone in the previous round.

Drew Wylie drops to the bench, while Colin Walshe and Shane Carey are not included in the matchday squad.

In their place come in Kieran Duffy, Paraic Mc Guirk and Ryan McAnespie. Ace attacker Conor McManus remains on the bench as Monaghan continue to ease him into the season.

Galway lead the top tier with four wins from four, but Malachy O’Rourke’s side are just two points behind and still have a credible chance of making the Division 1 final.
