Team News – Armagh vs Monaghan

Monaghan make the short trip to the Athletic Grounds tomorrow evening to face Kieran McGeeney’s unbeaten Armagh.

Geezer has announced his panel for the game, with few changes to the starting team that overcame Tyrone two weeks ago.

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Paddy Burns was due to start that day but made way for Stephen Sheridan who keeps his place this weekend.

Burns comes back into the starting 15 reclaiming the number two jersey. He slots in beside Aidan Forker and Aaron McKay.

Settled half back line

The half back line looks fairly settled and hasn’t changed from the opening two rounds. All three players have been in excellent form.

Niall Rowland has made the number six jersey his own while Connaire Mackin and Jarly Og Burns are in flying form.

Ciaran Mackin has been the find of the season and he once again starts at centerfield. He’ll partner Stephen Sheridan on Saturday afternoon.

Tiernan Kelly returns to the number 12 jersey having wore number 9 the last day out. Greg McCabe’s appeal has been upheld so he drops out of the starting 15.

Jemar Hall will once again bomb up and down from wing half forward while Rory Grugan holds on to the centre half forward shirt.

There’s no change to the inside line that has racked up 3-12 across Armagh’s two league outings.

Jason Duffy has been in great goal scoring form – netting every time his has started this year against Tyrone (McKenna Cup), Dublin and Tyrone.

Rian O’Neill is currently Armagh’s top scorer with 1-8. He showcased his playmaking talents the last day out, setting up a Greg McCabe goal.
