Derry make one change for Roscommon visit

By Michael McMullan

DERRY have made one change for Sunday’s visit of Roscommon to Celtic Park (1.45pm).

Niall Toner came on at half time for Niall Loughlin in Castlebar to score three vital points to clinch victory.

Toner is listed to start on Sunday with Loughlin dropping out of the matchday panel.

His place goes to Conor Doherty who sustained a knee injury in their win over Galway last month.

If they avoid defeat, Derry will book their place in next Sunday’s National League final ahead of their trip to Portugal for a pre-Championship training camp.

Derry will put their Ulster title on the line against Donegal at Celtic Park on Saturday, April 20.

The Rossies need to win and hope Kerry turn over Galway to beat the drop from Division One.

Derry: Odhrán Lynch; Conor McCluskey, Chrissy McKaigue, Diarmuid Baker; Gareth McKinless, Eoin McEvoy, Paudi McGrogan; Conor Glass, Brendan Rogers; Ethan Doherty, Ciaran McFaul, Paul Cassidy; Niall Toner, Shane McGuigan, Lachlan Murray

Subs: Ryan Scullion, Declan Cassidy, Conor Doherty, Mark Doherty, Matthew Downey, Shea Downey, Donncha Gilmore, Conleth McGuckian, Cahir McMonagle, Eunan Mulholland, Cormac Murphy
