Laois make three changes for trip to Armagh

Will Donie Kingston be named in the Laois starting 15 for this weekend?

Peter Creedon has made three personnel changes and a host of positional switches for Sunday’s Allianz Football League game away to Armagh.

Portlaoise’s Kieran Lillis, Crettyard’s Cormac Murphy and Timahoe’s Ruairi O’Connor come into the starting 15 in place of Alan Farrell, Eoin Lowry and David Conway.

It’s a first senior league start for Murphy who is named at wing-forward while there is a new midfield partnership entirely as Colm Begley and Danny Luttrell are paired together.

Darren Strong and Kevin Meaney – who played midfield last week in the loss to Louth – have been moved to corner-back and corner-forward respectively.

Lillis is named at centre-back with Eoin Buggie moving to the wing.

The game throws in at 3.30pm in the Athletic Grounds with both sides looking for their first win. Armagh drew away to Sligo in their opening game.
