Meath make two changes for Cavan clash


Meath manager Andy McEntee has made two changes to his side for this evening's Allianz Leagues Division 2 clash with neighbours Cavan at Kingspan Breffni.

Both teams are undefeated while Meath are on top of the table by just a single score going into the eagerly-awaited contest, which is live on eir Sport 1 [throw-in 7pm].

The outcome could have a significant bearing on how Division 2 takes shape as the teams head into a short break after this weekend's round of matches.

Meath's Eamon Wallace takes the place of his brother Joey for his for his first start of the season at top of the right, while Simonstown's Sean Tobin is picked in the other corner position to replace Bryan McMahon.

Both players have made significant impacts coming off the bench in the opening two Allianz Leagues games.

Wallace contributed 0-3 during the 0-21 to 0-7 victory over Clare last weekend, while Tobin also played his part in Navan scoring 0-2.

Simonstown's Shane Gallagher and Gaeil Colmcille's Liam Ferguson are called up to the matchday 26 with Donal Lenihan and Joey Wallace dropping out.

Team to play Cavan (Allianz FL): Andrew Colgan; Seamus Lavin, Conor McGill, Donal Keogan; Brían Conlon, Brian Power, Shane McEntee; Bryan Menton, Adam Flanagan; James McEntee, Padraig McKeever, Graham Reilly; Eamon Wallace, Cillian O'Sullivan, Sean Tobin.
