Meath manager Eamonn Barry has brought fit-again forward Daithí Regan back into his side for Sunday's NFL Division 1B visit of Kildare (Páirc Tailteann, throw-in 3.30pm).

St Michael's clubman Regan is fully recovered from injury and takes his place at left corner forward with Brian Farrell switching to full-forward from last weekend's 2-11 to 1-15 loss to Wexford. Daithí Whyte makes way.

The only other change in the Royals' 15 sees Caoimhín King recalled in place of Brian O'Reilly at right corner back. King was due to start last week's game in Wexford but was forced to withdraw.

Barry Lynch keeps his place in midfield with his flu completely cleared up.

Meath will hope Dunboyne marksman Ger Robinson can help them get back to winning ways. A former trainee soccer player with Middlesbrough, Robinson hit 2-3 against Wexford last Sunday and has hit a rich vein of form.

MEATH (NFL v Kildare) - B Murphy; C King, K Reilly, N McLoughlin; J Donoghue, A Moyles, S Kenny, B Lynch, N Crawford (capt); P Curran, J Sheridan, P Byrne; G Robinson, B Farrell, D Regan.
