Five changes in Mayo team to face Dublin

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Mayo have named their team for this Saturday's game against Dublin at Croke Park in Division I of the Allianz Football League.

The game, which will be televised on Setanta Sports and which will take place under the lights at HQ at 7pm, is a crucial one in the top tier as both sides look to reinforce their semi-final credentials. Dublin have won both their matches so far, while Mayo defeated Kerry in the opening round before a late defeat to Tyrone last time out.

James Horan has rung the changes for Mayo, with five players coming in, alongside a host of positional switches.

Kenneth O'Malley replaces David Clarke in goals, while Donal Vaughan comes into defence with Tom Cunniffe stepping aside.

A new midfield is named, with Jason Gibbons and Barry Moran starting in the centre. Aidan O'Shea moves into the half forward line while his brother Seamus is not starting. Kevin Keane, who started at corner back the last day, is on the bench, with Lee Keegan returning to the defence. He was named in attack the last day.

The other change sees Cathal Freeman replaced in attack by Enda Varley. Mayo are still without Ballintubber pair Cillian O'Connor (shoulder) and Alan Dillon, who suffered a recurrence of a muscle problem in the Tyrone game.

MAYO (SF v Dublin): K O'Malley; C Barrett, G Cafferkey, K Higgins; L Keegan, D Vaughan, C Boyle; J Gibbons, B Moran; K McLoughlin, A O'Shea, R Feeney; E Varley, J Doherty, M Conroy.
