Armagh boss Kieran McGeeney has named his starting 15 for Sunday’s Division 3 clash against Longford.

Brendan Donaghy returns to the line-up at right half-back in place of Maghery’s Aidan Forker, who was sent off in the defeat to Laois, while Ben Crealy is also restored at centre-field alongside Stephen Sheridan.

Some positional changes in the team see Oisin O’Neill - ‘Man of the Match’ in St Mary’s Sigerson Cup triumph last Saturday - named at right half-forward and Stefan Campbell down to start at full-forward, with Ethan Rafferty making way in what is a 'must win' game for the Orchard men having already lost their first two outings.

Throw-in at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park is at 2pm.

Armagh (FL3 v Longford): M McNeice; M Shields, C Vernon, P Hughes; B Donaghy, N Rowland, A McKay, S Sheridan, B Crealy; R Grugan, O O’Neill, N Grimley; A Duffy, S Campbell, O Mac Íomair.
