Antrim manager Jody Gormley has named an unchanged team for Saturday's NFL Division 4 showdown between the Saffrons and Offaly at Casement Park (throw-in 7pm).

This is a top-of-the-table clash with both sides unbeaten to date in the 2008 league.

Gormley's men have accounted for Wicklow, Kilkenny and Clare, while Offaly have recorded three successive wins over London, Carlow and Tipperary.

Antrim will once again include dual star Michael Magill at full-forward for the Offaly game. He helped the county's hurlers beat Offaly in the Walsh Cup final last month and also played recently against Dublin.

He holds his position in the footballers' attack with Tomas McCann the player to miss out again.

Paddy Cunningham and Kevin Niblock will start at right corner forward and centre forward respectively after been switched into those positions for the Clare game.

The home side, captained by centre back Sean Kelly, will be looking for another strong performance from midfielder Michael McCann who netted in their 1-13 to 0-3 victory over Clare last time out.

ANTRIM (SFC v Offaly): S McGreevey; T Scullion, A McClean, K O'Boyle; J Loughery, S Kelly, J Crozier; J Quinn, M McCann; A Gallagher, K Niblock, T O'Neill; P Cunningham, M Magill, M Dougan.
