The home side will be anxious to get their campaign back on track, after a disappointing loss to Louth last weekend.
The Westerners are one of the sleeping giants of Gaelic Football, and with a new management set-up in place, supporters of the Tribesmen will be hoping that the recent Under-21 stars can make the step up to senior level in 2013.
Galway began this season’s league campaign with an impressive defeat of Derry, but the high of that victory was quickly followed by the low of losing a rescheduled fixture against Louth. The Connacht side had their chances in that game and will be disappointed to head into Sunday’s match on the back of a heavy loss. Westmeath have a one hundred per cent success rate to date, having overcome both Louth and Longford.
Galway boss Alan Mulholland has made five changes from last weekend, with John Egan, Gary O’Donnell, Anthony Griffin, John O’Brien and Mark Hehir all coming in. Westmeath have made two enforced changes, with the injured pair of Paul Sharry and Dessie Dolan replaced by Doron Harte and Ciarán Curley respectively.
Players To Watch
Michael Meehan remains the most talented player in the Galway attack, and if he can stay injury free this season, he can really help the Tribesmen. Denis Glennon at corner forward is the chief threat for Westmeath.
