Westmeath v Meath
Cusack Park, Sunday 2.30pm
National Football League, Division 2
Westmeath host their closest rivals at Cusack Park on Sunday with few commentators offering the hosts much hope of survival in division 2 following their 1-6 to 0-12 loss to Louth last weekend.
Meath, however, will be pushing for promotion and eyeing a return to the top flight following their 1-15 to 1-9 victory over Monaghan in Navan last Saturday.
Westmeath (confirmed): Gary Connaughton, Michael Curley, Kieran Gavin, Daniel McDermott, Ronan Foley, Michael Ennis, Kevin Maguire, Trevor English, Aidan Finnan, Kieran Martin, Alan Giles, Philip Sheridan, Paul Sharry, Denis Glennon, Callum McCormack.
Subs: Darren Quinn, Kieran Sheridan, Ben Moran, Mark Dalton, Darragh Daly, Paul Bannon, John Egan, David Glennon, Mark Gorman, Alan Fennell, Alan Stone.
Meath (confirmed): D Gallagher; M Burke, B Menton, G O’Brien; C O’Connor, S McAnarney, C McGuinness; B Meade, M Ward; S Kenny, G Reilly, C Lenehan; P Gilsenan, S Bray, C Ward.
Verdict: hard to foresee anything other than a Meath victory.
