Masterson set for first Kildare start as Cian O'Neill makes two changes for Fermanagh clash

Kildare have made a pair of alterations for tomorrow night's Allianz National Football League clash with Fermanagh in Brewster Park.

After impressive cameo's off the bench in the O'Byrne Cup and the opening two league games Aaron Masterson gets his just reward with his first senior start as he replaces Fionn Dowling.

Masterson is one of four starters from county champions Moorefield and he will partner Kevin Feely in midfield with the ever adaptable Fergal Conway moving into the forwards.

Fresh from scoring three points off the bench against Cork, Neil Flynn also comes in at the expense of Jimmy Hyland.

The back six is beginning to get a familiar look to it while there is a positional change in the forward line with Adam Tyrrell interchanging with David Slattery.

The game is the last before a two week break so Kildare will be looking to maintain their unbeaten record.

Thrown in from Enniskillen is at 7.00pm.

Kildare team to play Fermanagh:

1 Mark Donnellan Maynooth
2 Mark Dempsey Moorefield
3 Mick O’Grady Celbridge
4 David Hyland Athy
5 James Murray Moorefield
6 Eoin Doyle Naas
7 Keith Cribbin Johnstownbridge
8 Kevin Feely Athy
9 Aaron Masterson Moorefield
10 Conor Hartley Sarsfields
11 Fergal Conway Celbridge
12 David Slattery Confey
13 Adam Tyrrell Moorefield
