Louth manager Pete McGrath has opted to make three changes to his team for Saturday evening's crucial Division Two meeting with Cavan at Breffni Park.

Declan Byrne, Conall McKeever and Gerard McSorley all make way from the forward line that started in Drogheda last Sunday with Ryan Burns named at corner-forward, Conor Grimes at full-forward and Conor Early handed his debut at midfield.

In a positional switch, captain Andy McDonnell has moved from midfield to centre-forward meaning Jim McEneaney is shifted to the left-wing.

The defence remains the same with teenager Emmet Carolan - who impressed his manager on debut against Down - at full-back and Bevan Duffy at no. 6.

With Cavan having won only five of their last 16 league and championship encounters at home, the Wee County will hope to overcome the disappointment of defeat to Down by opening their Division two account with victory at Breffni Park this weekend.
