Leitrim manager Mickey Moran has handed Wayne McKeon and Ray Mulvey their Championship debuts for Sunday's Connacht SFC semi-final against Roscommon at Dr Hyde Park (throw-in 3.30pm).

McKeon and Mulvey come in to a team which shows a total of seven changes to the side beaten by Roscommon in the Connacht Championship last year.

The bulk of those changes are in defence, with Noel Gill, Michael McGuinness, Barry Prior, Gary McWeeney and Gary McCloskey absent from the starting line-up.

Carrickallen's Enda Lyons replaces Noel Gill between the posts, with Daniel Beck coming in to partner John McKeon and Dermot Reynolds in the full-back line.

Shane Foley and Wayne McKeon have been drafted into the half-back line, while Eslin's Tomas Beirne is partnered by Shane Canning at midfield.

The number 10 jersey has been retired in memory of the late Philip McGuinness, with Drumkeerin's Colm Clarke set to wear number 17, from right half-forward.

David O'Connor is flanked by Clarke and Michael Foley in the half-forwards, with Emlyn Mulligan and Colin Regan absent through cruciate injuries.

Declan Maxwell is held in reserve after missing the entire National League campaign through injury, and has only recently return to light training after an operation on his ankle.

Meanwhile, Ray Cox, Glencar/Manorhamilton's James Glancy and Ray Mulvey complete the Leitrim attack.

LEITRIM (SFC v Roscommon): E Lyons; D Beck, J McKeon (capt), D Reynolds; J Glancy (St. Mary's), S Foley, W McKeon; T Beirne, S Canning; C Clarke, D O'Connor, M Foley; R Cox, James Glancy (Glencar/Manorhamilton), R Mulvey.
