Meath look set to be without three players for their Allianz Football League meeting with Kildare on Saturday.

Graham Reilly is a doubt with an ankle injury. Joe Sheridan and Kevin Reilly are doubts due to knocks received in club games.

Manager Seamus McEnaney told the Irish Independent: "Any substantial injury at this time of the year could see a player missing two league games, so you have to manage them very carefully.

"Kildare played us three times last year and won all three. I think they've won the last five meetings between the counties, but what's done is done and there's no way that should have any influence on this game.

"There's a traditional rivalry between the counties and even though it's still very early in the season, this is always seen as a big game.

"I think the three-week break in the League probably came at the right time for Kildare. It will have allowed them to re-group and they are sure to be a stronger outfit now."
