DONIE SMITH PROVED Roscommon’s saviour last Sunday in Croke Park when launching over the injury-time free to bring them level against Mayo but he has been held in reserve again for next Monday’s All-Ireland quarter-final replay.

Smith came off the bench in the second half and scored 0-2, including the final point of the game as the teams finished deadlocked at 2-9 to 1-12.

But manager Kevin McStay has opted not to name him in the starting team announced for the replay with the side unchanged from that which started the drawn game.

Smith, the Compton brothers – Colin and Cathal – Ian Kilbride and Ronan Stack were all sprung from the bench last Sunday.

Ultan Harney, Ciaran Cafferkey, and Thomas Corcoran are all again unavailable due to injury.

It’s the third successive game that Roscommon will be unchanged for following the Mayo match and the Connacht final win over Galway.
