MAYO MANAGER STEPHEN Rochford has named the team he hopes will end Dublin’s 32-game unbeaten run tomorrow night in Croke Park.
Two straight wins have left Mayo in second place and Rochford makes just one change from their win over Roscommon in Castlebar.
David Drake comes in at wing-back to replace Conor O’Shea, as Donal Vaughan pushes forward to midfield and Diarmuid O’Connor moves to wing-forward.
Otherwise Mayo are unchanged for tomorrow night’s glamour fixture, with Aidan O’Shea absent again due to an ankle injury he sustained playing basketball over the winter.
Stalwart Keith Higgins, who also lines out for the county’s hurlers, will make his s129th senior appearance.
On the Dublin side, there are just two personnel changes.
Gavin brings in David Byrne for Jack McCaffrey in defence, with Eric Lowndes moving to the wing.
Michael Darragh MacAuley replaces Ciaran Reddin in midfield, while the attack remains unchanged.
