Meath manager Andy McEntee has reverted to a more experienced starting XV for Sunday’s promotional play-off clash with Kildare in Newbridge, 1.4

He has made just one change from the side that started the win over Down in Armagh with Gaeil Colmcille’s Fionn Reilly selected for a first start having recovered from injury to take a place in the half-back line at the expense of Eoin Harkin.

James McEntee returns to the 26-man panel as he has missed all the games so far because of injury, while Mickey Newman, who impressed in his appearance f against Mayo, is retained on the matchday squad.
