Orchard boss Joe Kernan has rung the changes, calling in Andy Mallon and Paul McCormack to defence, with Enda McNulty and Aidan O'Rourke dropping to the bench.

Paul McGrane returns to midfield, so John McEntee moves to centre-forward, with Martin O'Rourke starting at right half-forward.

Paddy McKeever, Stephen Kernan and Malachy Mackin all drop to the bench following the last round narrow victory over Limerick.

Tony McEntee is still on the treatment table following an ankle injury sustained during Crossmaglen's All-Ireland Club semi-final defeat in February.
