Former Mattock Rangers forward Mark Brennan has made way for Brian Donnelly as the Louth boss attempts to put back-to-back wins together.

Naomh Mairtin’s Mick Fanning retains his place in midfield despite being substituted after just half an hour last week against Galway.

There’s still no place in the forward line for Darren Clarke, with Pauric Smith, Kevin Rogers and Shane Lennon leading the line.

Cooley Kickhams’ Conor McGuinness holds on to his place in defence following a much praised performance against the Tribesmen last Saturday.

Louth starting XV: NEIL GALLAGHER, CONOR MC GUINNESS, DESSIE FINNEGAN, GERARD HOEY, JOHN O BRIEN, DEREK CRILLY, ADRIAN REID, PADDY KEENAN, MICK FANNING, ANDY MC DONNELL, BRIAN DONNELLY, BRIAN WHITE, PARAIC SMITH, SHANE LENNON, KEVIN ROGERS.
