Four changes for Meath hurlers

Meath manager Nick Weir has made four changes in personnel and several position swaps for tomorrow's final game of the Joe McDonagh Cup campaign against high-flying Antrim at Pairc Tailteann, 1pm.

Jack Regan, who picked up a straight red card in last week's loss to Westmeath, is replaced by Kiltale clubmate James Kelly, while goalkeeper Mark McCormack and Killyon's Adam Gannon, who both limped out of last week's loss, are replaced by Trim's Charlie Ennis and Ratoath's Daithi McGowan respectively.

Kiltale's Cathal McCabe also drops to the bench with Ben McGowan coming into defence as Keith Keoghan moves to the full-forward position.

Kildalkey's Paddy Conneely is moved from midfield to corner-forward with Alan Douglas moving back outfield to join Padraic O'Hanrahan in the middle.

Meath are still searching for their first win in two years in the Joe McDonagh Cup, but they are likely to find the going tough against a strong Antrim side who need a win top be assured of a place in the Croke Park final that will be played as a curtain-raiser to the All-Ireland SHC final.

Meath (v Antrim) - Charlie Ennis; Seán Geraghty, Shane Brennan, Michael Burke; Shane Whitty, Darragh Kelly, Ben McGowan; Alan Douglas, Padraic O'Hanrahan; James Kelly, Stephen Morris, Daithi McGowan; Paddy Conneely, Keith Keoghan, Jack Walsh.
