One change on Laois football team for Fermanagh clash

Laois senior footballers

There is one change on the Laois football team for Saturday’s National League Division 3 game against Fermanagh in Enniskillen.

Graiguecullen’s Brian Byrne returns to the half-forward line in place of Cormac Murphy from Crettyard with the rest of the team remaining unchanged from the side that drew with Antrim last Saturday.

Byrne replaced Murphy late in the Antrim game and comes in to start on this occasion, as he did in the opening two rounds against Louth and Westmeath.

Elsewhere, goalkeeper Matthew Byron retains his place having made his league debut against Antrim.

The Laois-Fermanagh game is re-fixed from two weeks ago when it was called off because of an unplayable pitch.

Laois and Fermanagh are tied on three points each in mid-table.

Laois beat Louth in their opening game, lost to Westmeath and then drew with Antrim. Fermanagh lost at home to Antrim in their first outing before drawing away with Wicklow and then beating Longford away the last day out.

Longford and Westmeath meet in the other re-fixed game in Division 3 in Mullingar.

Laois-Fermanagh throws in at 3.30pm in Brewster Park in Enniskillen and we will be providing minute-by-minute updates in our live blog.

LAOIS: Matthew Byron; James Kelly, Trevor Collins, Alex Mohan; Sean O’Flynn, John O’Loughlin, Gareth Dillon; James Finn, Kieran Lillis; Brian Byrne, Eoin Lowry, Paddy O’Sullivan; Mark Barry, Evan O’Carroll, Gary Walsh.
