KILDARE boss Kieran McGeeney has named his team to face Cavan in the All Ireland qualifiers in Breffni Park this Sunday.

Ellistown’s Andrew McLoughlin will replace Ollie Lyons at corner back, while Rob Kelly has been named as Daryl Flynn’s partner in the middle of the field. The Straffan man lined out in the middle against Offaly last month but lost his place for the Lilies semi final meeting with Meath in Croke Park.

There is no place in the starting line up for new boy Seanie Johnston however. The St Kevin’s club man is back in full training though and came through a full session last night (Tuesday) in the behind closed doors session in Hawkfield.

Kildare SF -v- Cavan: Shane Connolly; Andrew McLoughlin, Mick Foley, Peter Kelly; Emmet Bolton, Morgan O’Flaherty, Hugh McGrillen; Daryl Flynn, Rob Kelly; Eoghan O’Flaherty, Mikey Conway, Alan Smith; Johnny Doyle, Tomas O’Connor, James Kavanagh.
