Kildare manager John Crofton has named an unchanged team for Saturday's All-Ireland SFC second round qualifier against Louth in Newbridge (throw-in 7pm).

Big full-forward Jason Phillips and midfielder Ronan Sweeney retain their positions, having started in place of the injured Ross Glavin and Tadhg Fennin for last weekend's first round clash with Roscommon.

The Lilywhites emerged as 2-13 to 1-13 victors over Roscommon and Crofton has kept faith with all 15 players that started that game.

David Lyons continues to partner Sweeney at centre-field - with team captain Dermot Earley and Killian Brennan still on the injury list - and Kevin O'Neill will get a second day out at full-back.

Allenwood clubman John Doyle, who inspired with his 1-8 haul against Roscommon, will again lead the Kildare attack from centre-forward.

KILDARE (SFC v Louth) - E Murphy; E Callaghan, K O'Neill, A McLoughlin; A Rainbow, M Hogarty, E Bolton; R Sweeney, D Lyons; J Kavanagh, J Doyle, K Donnelly; M Conway, J Phillips, P O'Neill.
