It is still shocking to see the Royals playing under the Division III banner this season. Both sides will be looking for a vast improvement in aim of having a chance of returning to the higher division.
Meath started the season slowly with a twelve point loss to Monaghan. They showed a bit of the old snarl against Wicklow on their most recent encounter and would need to hold up that form if having any chance of beating the resurgent Cavan side.
Cavan lost their opening encounter to a strong Antrim side. Their recent eight point victory over an inform Monaghan side has left them in good strengths coming in to this encounter.
Cavan have made three changes for the encounter with their closest rival’s .Rory Dunne, John McCutcheon and the suspended Martin Dunne all miss out. James McEnroe has been called in to replace Dunne at full back, Killian Clarke slots in at corner back. Martin Reilly, who scored Cavan’s goal against Monaghan after coming on as a substitute returns to the centre forward position.
Mick O’Dowd has made two changes from the side that beat Wicklow. Both changes come in the forwards Stephen Crosby and Brian Farrell come back into the starting line-up in place of Mark Collins and Sean Tobin. O’Dowd sticks with the same midfield and defence
Players To Watch
DIT man David Givney holds the captains role for tomorrows encounter. The Cavan man has been in cracking form for both College and County and is sure to cause problems for the Meath defence.
Mikey Newman is scored five points in the victory over Wicklow. He was impressive from frees and will be dangerous tomorrow if Cavan do not keep their discipline.
Meath have the home advantage tomorrow, but they have looked somewhat deflated this season . Cavan can sneak the victory at 2/1
