More of the same for Meath ahead of toughest test of all
For the second game in succession Andy McEntee has named an unchanged team and for the first time this year the same 26 that travelled to Croke Park for the Leinster SFC semi-final win over Kildare will travel to HQ again this evening for the final tilt at Dublin.
Jordan Morris, Matt Costello and David Toner, who all made their championship debuts against Wicklow, will start for the third game in succession, while Navan O'Mahonys goalkeeper Mark Brennan is preferred between the posts again ahead of Andy Colgan.
Fears that the knock to the head picked up by Cillian O'Sullivan in the latter stages of the win over Kildare might rule his out have been eased as the Moynalvey man is named at right-half-forward.
The team will be joint-captained by Bryan Menton and Donal Keogan as Meath bid to end Dublin's provincial dominance and claim a first Leinster SFC crown in 10 years.
Meath (SFC v Dublin) - Mark Brennan; Seamus Lavin, Conor McGill, David Toner; Donal Keogan, Shane McEntee, Mathew Costello; Bryan Menton, Ronan Jones; Cillian O'Sullivan, Bryan McMahon, Ronan Ryan; Jordan Morris, Shane Walsh, Thomas O'Reilly.
