Down manager James McCartan has gone with an unchanged team for Sunday's All-Ireland SFC final against Cork at Croke Park (throw-in 3.30pm).
Regular captain Ambrose Rogers has missed out on a place in the starting line-up, owing to his well-documented cruciate knee ligament injury.
Rogers has been named among the substitutes, with Peter Fitzpatrick retained in midfield alongside Kalum King.
Speaking in the build-up to the final, McCartan said: "With 10 or 15 minutes to go, we might need a lift and if he's fit and able, we'll look in Ambrose's direction."
There is a positional switch in the attack as the experienced Benny Coulter shifts to wing forward and Paul McComiskey joins the Clarke brothers in the full-forward line.
Despite failing to score against both Kerry and Kildare, John Clarke will start once again at full-forward. He has held off Ronan Murtagh and Conor Maginn for the starting berth.
DOWN (SFC v Cork): B McVeigh; D McCartan, D Gordon, D Rafferty; D Rooney, K McKernan, C Garvey; P Fitzpatrick, K King; D Hughes, M Poland, B Coulter; P McComiskey, J Clarke, M Clarke.
