Laois take on Offaly in Round 6 of their Allianz Football League Division 3 campaign this afternoon.

Following on from the win over Longford two weeks ago, manager Sugrue has made three changes to the starting team.

Trevor Collins, Eoin Lowry and Colm Murphy are in from the start in place of Robbie Pigott, Sean Byrne and Conor Boyle.

This leads to a number of positional changes with Collins coming in at wing back and Colm Begley moving to centre back.

Eoin Lowry comes in as a straight swap for Conor Boyle but the inclusion of Colm Murphy sees Donie Kingston move to centre forward with Benny Carroll going to the wing.

Laois face Offaly in O’Connor Park at 2pm on Saturday and you will be able to follow all of the action on our Live Blog.

After the win over Longford, Laois have now given themselves a chance of gaining promotion from Division 3.

They must defeat Offaly on Saturday and then Carlow a week later in order to have a chance though – and they will need a few results to go their way elsewhere too.

However, if Laois lose to Offaly they will be plunged back into the relegation dog fight – so it really is all to play for this weekend.
