Team news: No place for Heslin as Westmeath make two changes

There is no place for John Heslin on the Westmeath team named to face Armagh in the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers at Cusack Park tomorrow.

The Lake County captain has been struggling with a hip flexor injury which kept him out of the starting 15 for the Leinster quarter-final defeat to Laois last month.

As part of two changes, manager Colin Kelly has handed Tubberclair goalkeeper Kevin Fagan his championship debut in place of Stephen Gallagher.

The other change is enforced as Rosemount's Boidu Sayeh comes into defence for Alan Stone who suffered a cruciate ligament injury in training last week.

Westmeath (All-Ireland SFC v Armagh): Kevin Fagan; Mark McCallon, Sam Duncan, Jamie Gonoud; John Egan, Noel Mulligan, Boidu Sayeh; Denis Corroon, Darragh Daly; Kieran Martin, Ronan O'Toole, Ger Egan; Luke Loughlin, John Connellan, Callum McCormack.
