Allianz Football League Division Three

Derry v Offaly, Celtic Park, 2.30pm

A vital match in Division Three as Derry and Offaly haven't earned a League win in 2018.

Damian McErlain's Derry were beaten by Westmeath and Longford. Offaly, under the stewardship of Stephen Wallace, have lost to Longford and Fermanagh.

Both teams are introducing new players to the senior inter-county game, but this match in Celtic Park carries huge relevance.

DERRY: Oran Hartin; Michael McEvoy, Kevin Johnston, Ruairi Mooney; Michael Bateson, Carlus McWilliams, Conor Doherty; Conor McAtamney, Emmett Bradley; Padraig McGrogan, Enda Lynn, Benny Heron; Peter Hagan, Terence O'Brien, Niall Toner.

OFFALY: Barry Rohan; Declan Hogan, Paul McConway, David Brady; David Dempsey, Sean Pender, Niall Darby; Peter Cunningham, Conor McNamee; Bobby O'Dea, Michael Brazil, Shane Nally; Bernard Allen, Anton Sullivan, Nigel Dunne.
