Macauley and McManamon return for Dubs

Dublin aiming for sixth Leinster SFC title in a row

Michael Darragh Macauley and Kevin McManamon return to the Dublin side for tomorrow evening's Leinster SFC quarter-final against Laois in Nowlan Park.

The pair come in for Denis Bastick in midfield and Paul Mannion at corner forward respectively as Dublin face their first championship game outside Croke Park since 2006.

Jim Gavin's side are looking to win the Leinster SFC title for the sixth year in succession with their last defeat coming in the semi-final against Meath back in 2010.

There had been calls for the game to be played in Portlaoise following the O'Moore men's win over Wicklow in the first round, but Nowlan Park was selected as the venue with a 7pm throw-in.
