One Change To Dublin Starters For Crucial Kildare Clash

Brian Howard - Leinster Championship

The Dublin Senior Footballers will look to bounce back from disappointing draw with Roscommon last week

Dublin Senior Football Panel - All Ireland versus Kildare

Kildare v Dublin
All Ireland Senior Football Championship Round 2
Saturday, June 3rd. 5:00pm
UPMC Nowlan Park, Kilkenny

Dublin Football Supporters will be Kilkenny bound tomorrow afternoon as Dessie Farrell’s men travel for the away leg of this year’s All Ireland Senior Football Championship Round Series. And with St. Conleth’s Park unavailable, Kildare have chosen Nowlan Park, the home of hurling, as their home venue for what will be an important clash for both sides involved.

Both Kildare and Dublin played out agonising draws in their opening fixtures. Kildare were held to a 0-14 a piece tie against Sligo, while Dublin and Roscommon fought to the final whistle in a 1-11 to 0-14 drawn game. If anything it means this Group 3 competitionwill go down to the wire regardless of what happens tomorrow. But for Dessie Farrell a win is the only acceptable result from tomorrow fixture if Dublin are to try and regain their much loved Sam Maguire Cup.

This morning the Dublin manager named his panel for tomorrow’s Round 2 clash. And he’s made one change to the team that started against Roscommon last week. Cian Murphy comes in to replace David Byrne at Corner Back.
