Cavan look to round-out their Tailteann cup group phase with a 100% record by beating Offaly.
Offaly’s draw with Laois in round one means they need a win to win group one. While Cavan can afford a draw to secure a home quarter-final.
Last year’s runners-up are look to go one further and add the Tailteann Cup to the division three title.
Whereas, Mickey Graham has made three changes to the side which beat London. Cian Reilly replaces Killian Clarke at right-corner-back. Clarke moves to centre-field for James Smith and Jonathan McCabe comes in for Gerard Smith.
Whereas, Dara McVeety is involved in this year’s Tailteann Cup campaign for the first time, having being named on the bench.
Similarly, Offaly are guaranteed a place in the knockout round. Additionally, victory would see them win the group and take a home quarter-final. A draw would see them take a home pre-lim-quarter-final.
Defeat would see Offaly enter the pre-lim-quarter-finals although possibly as third seed’s, depending on results. With three points on the board they are guaranteed a place as one of the top three third-placed teams.
