Team news – One change for each sidepublished at 15:50

Armagh v Roscommon, Croke Park, 16:00 BST

Both sides were extremely happy with their respective results last time out, so it’s understandable they’ve opted for minimal changes today.

Armagh’s comeback draw with Galway gave Kieran McGeeney’s side a vital extra week’s rest as they avoided the preliminary quarter-finals and they should be the fresher side today. Mindful of Roscommon’s quality full-forward line, McGeeney has recalled experienced defender Paddy Burns to the full-back line with Ciaran Higgins dropping out.

Connaire Mackin is back in Armagh’s matchday 26 after serving a one-game ban – the Maghery defender missed the draw with Galway last time out after picking up a retrospective red card for kicking Conor Glass during the win over Derry ar Celtic Park.

Roscommon were overjoyed with their upset win over Tyrone in Omagh a week ago, a victory that has put them back in the quarter-finals for the first time since 2017. The only change from the win over Tyrone sees Ronan Daly replace Dylan Ruane.

And surprisingly, we are hearing there are no late changes on either side, so we should start as named in the match programme.

Armagh: Blaine Hughes; Paddy Burns, Aaron McKay, Peter McGrane; Barry McCambridge, Tiernan Kelly, Aidan Forker; Niall Grimley, Ben Crealey; Oisin Conaty, Rian O’Neill, Joe McElroy; Rory Grugan, Andrew Murnin, Conor Turbitt.

Subs: Ethan Rafferty, Connaire Mackin, Jason Duffy, Greg McCabe, Aidan Nugent, Oisin O’Neill, Stefan Campbell, Shane McPartlan, Ross McQuillan, Jarly Og Burns, Darragh McMullan.

Roscommon: Conor Carroll; Niall Higgins, Brian Stack, Robbie Dolan; David Murray, Ronan Daly, Eoin McCormack; Enda Smith, Ruaidhri Fallon; Ultan Harney, Diarmuid Murtagh, Shane Cunnane; Daire Cregg, Conor Cox, Donie Smith.

Subs: Colm Lavin, Niall Daly, Conor Hussey, Dylan Ruane, Keith Doyle, Andrew Glennon, Conor Hand, Adam McDermott, Tadhg O’Rourke, Cathal Heneghan, Ciaran Lennon.
