Roscommon boss Kevin McStay has made four changes to his side for Sunday's Allianz League meeting with Clare in Ennis.

John McManus, Cathal Compton, Tadhg O'Rourke and Donie Smith all come into the starting 15 for the rescheduled clash from last Sunday week's 12-point victory over Louth.

McManus, who was the first man off the bench against the Wee County the last day, starts at full-back while Compton starts at centre-field alongside O'Rourke.

Boyle sharpshooter Smith is rewarded for his impressive 0-7 haul as a substitute in Drogheda after being named by McStay in a full-forward line which includes Ciaran Lennon and Diarmuid Murtagh. Conor Daly, Enda Smith and Cathal Cregg drop to the bench while defender Ross Timothy misses out.

Throw-in at Cusack Park is at 2pm.

Roscommon (FL2 v Clare): James Featherston; Sean McDermott, John McManus, Peter Domican; Ronan Daly, David Murray, Niall Daly; Tadgh O'Rourke, Cathal Compton; Ciarain Murtagh, Niall Kilroy, Conor Devaney; Donie Smith, Ciaran Lennon, Diarmuid Murtagh
