New look Laois team V AIT

Laois football manager Justin McNulty has made ten changes from the side that beat Westmeath ahead of Sunday's final O'Byrne Cup Group C match with Athlone IT 

Paul Begley, Kevin Meaney, Robbie Kehoe, Shane Julian, Mark Timmons, David Murphy, Damien O'Connor, Cormac Delaney, Gary Walsh and Colm Kelly come in for O'Moores 

Eoin Culliton is in goal, Paul Begley is in at right corner back with Kevin Meaney restored to full back and Robbie Kehoe in the left corner 

That full back line means Cahir Healy is liberated to right wing back with Shane Julian at centre half back and Darren Strong at left half back 

It's a third different midfield in as many games with John O'Loughlin brought forward to partner Mark Timmons 

Billy Sheehan is the only forward to retain his place from midweek with the Kerry native starting at centre half forward, Damien O'Connor and goalscorer against Offaly David Murphy are on the wings 

The new look inside forward line sees Gary Walsh at full forward and Stradbally duo Colm Kelly and Cormac Delaney in the corners 

A big win for Laois in the 2pm throw in at Portarlington coupled with a narrow Westmeath win in Mullingar could see them reach the last four 

There will be regular updates on Midlands 103 with thanks to Laois Hire
