Dubs unchanged for Mayo semi-final
28 Aug 2015 22:10
There is no place in the starting line-up for 2013 Footballer of the Year Michael Darragh Macauley after Dublin manager Jim Gavin named an unchanged side to face Mayo in Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC semi-final.
-
Macauley was selected for the quarter-final win over Fermanagh, but had to be content with a place on the bench as Denis Bastick started ahead of him in midfield.
-
Gavin has stuck with the 15 that started against the Erne County, meaning Paddy Andrews gets the nod at full-forward with Kevin McManamon held in reserve.
-
Rory O’Carroll will man the edge of the square, where he is expected to mark Mayo target-man Aidan O’Shea, with Jonny Cooper and Philip McMahon in the corners either side of him.
-
Cian O’Sullivan will anchor the defence in the number six jersey while in front of him Brian Fenton will partner Bastick in the middle of the field as he continues his impressive debut season.
-
Arguably Dublin’s strongest line is the half-forwards, with Paul Flynn, Ciaran Kilkenny and Diarmuid Connolly.
-
The spearhead of the attack will once again be Bernard Brogan, who has scored five goals already this summer. His brother Alan is amongst the substitutes.
-
Dublin: Stephen Cluxton; Jonny Cooper, Rory O’Carroll, Philip McMahon; James McCarthy, Cian O’Sullivan, Jack McCaffrey; Brian Fenton, Denis Bastick; Paul Flynn, Ciaran Kilkenny, Diarmuid Connolly; Dean Rock, Paddy Andrews, Bernard Brogan.
