Mick O'Dowd has made four changes from the team that were humbled by Cavan last Saturday night for Sunday's win or bust trip to Roscommon in NFL Div 3.
Kevin Reilly, who replaced Brian Meade at half-time in that Cavan game, retains his place in centrefield alongside Conor Gillespie.
There are also three changes to the attack with Gillespie's Summerhill colleague David Larkin being handed his first start in place of Stephen Crosby.
Joe Sheridan and Cian Ward also return to the starting 15 with Paddy Gilsenan and Brian Farrell making way. Graham Reilly will move to centre-forward to allow Sheridan take up a full-forward role
Meath (v Roscommon) - Paddy O'Rourke; Donal Keogan, Brian Menton, Sean Curran; Ciaran Lenehan, Eoghan Harrington, Davy Dalton; Conor Gillespie, Kevin Reilly; David Larkin, Graham Reilly, Peadar Byrne; Cian Ward, Joe Sheridan, Michael Newman.
