Team News – Monaghan vs Armagh

Orchard County manager Padraig O’Connor has made two changes to the team that defeated Louth by one-point last weekend.

The introduction of Eoin McGuinness helped them get over the line against the Wee County after while Dean Gaffney fired over 0-10.

McGuinness earns a starting jersey this weekend. The big full forward claimed 2-1 after coming in last weekend.

Tiarnan O’Neill also starts in the full forward line, having impressed off the bench in round one.

Simon Doherty, who pulled off a super double save against Louth, retains his spot between the sticks.

Patrick Quinn leads the full back line with Caolan Rice and Jim Short either side of the Derrynoose defender.

Stephen Renaghan joins Shea Gaffney and Tiarnan Nevin to complete a strong half back line.

In midfield, Middletown duo Paddy McBride and Odhran Curry, who both scored last weekend, retain their spots at centerfield.

It’s an all-Middletown half forward line as well. Nathan Curry and top scorer against Louth Dean Gaffney move out to the half forward line.

They both started inside in round one but move out the field, with Ryan Gaffney completing the line.

Inside, Danny Magee, keeps his place in the corner. He’ll be joined by Tiarnan O’Neill and Eoin McGuinness who make the team.

2021 Fionntan Donnelly along with Michael Lennon will hope to make an impact off the bench when called upon.

Armagh are out to secure their second win of the season and continue their push for promotion.

They’ll held the upper hand over Monaghan in recent years and should get the job done once again on Sunday.

The Orchard defeated the Farney men heavily last season, winning 1-27 to 2-15, when McGuinness also hit the net.

They now have panel full of strength in depth, as displayed in the McGurk Cup. All their subs can have a massive say when coming into the action.
