Laois manager Liam Kearns has resisted the tempation to start fit again Padraig Clancy as he keeps faith with his rookie midfield which started the last day against Wicklow. Both John O Loughlin and Kevin Meaney retain their places as Kearns opts for just one change in his line up to face Wexford on Sunday in Croke Park.
Emo’s Paul Lawlor comoes in at top of the left in place of Colm Parkinson, with Michael John Tierney recovering from a hamstring strain to take him place in the opposite corner.
Laois team - Michael Nolan (Portlaoise), Cahir Healy (Portlaoise), Mark Timmons (Graiguecullen), Joe Higgins (St Josepehs), Tom Kelly (St Josephs), Darren Rooney (Clonaslee St Manmans), Padraig McMahon (Ballyroan Abbey), John O Loughlin (Mountmellick), Kevin Meaney (Arles Kilcruise), Ross Munnelly (Arles Kilcruise), Brian Bruno McCormack (Portlaoise), Billy Sheehan (Emo), Paul Lawlor (Emo), Colm Kelly (St Josephs), Michael John Tierney (Ballyroan Abbey).
