CONOR MCMANUS IS among a number of experienced players named to start for Monaghan in their Ulster SFC quarter-final against Cavan this evening in Kingspan Breffni Park [throw-in, 7pm].

The three-time All-Star has been selected to start at full-forward for Malachy O’Rourke’s outfit, with Ryan McAnespie and Stephen O’Hanlon slotting into the corners.

The 2018 All-Star goalkeeper Rory Beggan is set to start between the sticks with seasoned defenders Drew and Ryan Wylie featuring in the full-back line.

Karl O’Connell, who also picked up an All-Star last year, will bring plenty of power and strength to the half-back line alongside Colin Walshe and Kieran Duffy.

Fintan Kelly and Kieran Hughes have been picked to pair up at midfield while Dermot Malone has been named to start at centre-half forward.
