LIVE BLOG: Follow all the action as the Laois footballers face neighbours Carlow

The Laois senior footballers take on Carlow in O’Moore Park this afternoon at 2pm.

Anything less than a win for John Sugrue’s men will mean that their chances of gaining promotion to Division 2 are over.

The team named shows three changes from the side that beat Offaly last weekend. 

Robbie Pigott, Conor Boyle and Paul Cahillane all come into the side with Marty Scully, Ross Munnelly and Colm Murphy making way.

The personnel changes also lead to a couple of positional switches with Pigott in at centre-back where he started against Down, Louth and Longford and Colm Begley moving to the wing.

Conor Boyle returns to the starting team having only come on as a sub against Offaly and he goes to centre-forward with Donie Kingston moving back into the full-forward line alongside top scorer Evan O’Carroll and Paul Cahillane.

Interestingly, Cahillane is named at full-forward with Kingston and O’Carroll in the corners.

Cahillane is rewarded with a starting position having scored a crucial goal in the win over Offaly after coming on as a sub to add to the goal he scored in the Round 1 win over Down.

Laois must win to have a chance of promotion and of reaching the Division 2 final. They also need Longford to do them a favour and beat Westmeath.

It promises to be a topsy-turvy afternoon and you can follow it all below:
