Yes what I mean get past Roscommon our bogey team over the last few years and surely that in itself will inspire the lads to kick on and hopefully take a bit of silverware from head office , just what the doctor ordered for our trip to Donegal later on,easier to build on a winning mentality,

Even without the silver ware winning promotion would be a massive boost to all.

Bad elbow injury I hear suffered in training but so far McGlennan only commented that he would miss the Down game so not sure

Roscommon on Sunday are without three first choice defenders in Sean Mullooly,Niall McInerney and John McManus and key players such as Ultan Harney, Enda Smith and Conor Daly aren't fit enough to start. In form Cavan won't get many better chances than this Sunday to beat their "bogey" team.

They are in the same boat as Cavan who look like they will be missing Philips, Murray and Clarke with Mackey still not fit enough to start.

I don't think Philips and Murray are first choice? they are given a run in the team to see can they hold their own. Clarke returned from injury the last day didn't he and was a starter in other games? and Mackey seems to used as impact sub nowadays the same as Cathal Cregg with Roscommon.

They have been first choice more or less, Killian has a hamstring injury and McGlennan said in the paper this week that he might miss Sunday. We are playing a bit looser this year and I fear that if it comes to a shootout the Rossies have too much firepower, hope to be proved completely wrong....

Murray is first choice and Philips had put himself into the poisition of first choice.

Murray probably being our best player over last few years. Mackey not an impact player if being brought on early in game rathet than late. Just improving fitness bit by bit. Poor Philips with injury after making a position for himself.

Team to play Roscommon on Sunday:

1. James Farrelly (Kingscourt)
2. Jason McLoughlin (Shannon Gaels)
3. Padraig Faulkner (Kingscourt)
4. Conor Brady (Gowna)
5. Martin Reilly (Killygarry)
6. Ciaran Brady (Arvagh)
7. Enda Flanagan (Castlerahan)
8. Killian Clarke (Shercock)
9. Bryan Magee (Cuchulainns)
10. Dara McVeety (Crosserlough)
11. Conor Moynagh (Drumgoon)
12. Oisin Kiernan (Castlerahan)
13. Niall Clerkin (Shercock)
14. Gearoid McKiernan (Swanlinbar)
15. Caoimhin O'Reilly (Butlersbridge)

16. Raymond Galligan (Lacken)
17. Jack Wharton (Cornafean)
18. Stephen Murray (Cavan Gaels)
19. Sean McCormack (Ballyhaise)
20. Adrian Cole (Ramor United)
21. Conor Bradley (Ramor United)
22. Cian Mackey (Castlerahan)
23. Sean Johnston (Cavan Gaels)
24. David Brady (Ballyhaise)
25. Niall Murray (Cavan Gaels)
26. Conor Madden (Gowna)
27. Paul Gilcreest (Lavey)
28. Ciaran Flynn (Cavan Gaels)

Any reason why Galligan isn't starting in goals? Thought he played really well and pulled off some good saves against Down. Roscommon are a good attacking side and create a lot of chances, so a decent shot-stopper between the sticks would be handy to have. Is Farrelly better in that regard does anyone know?

In other news, good to see Cathedral Road in Cavan strongly represented with three of my neighbours on the team sheet!

Called rotating goalkeepers lads. We have done the same with our keepers.

V Clare Raymond Galligan
V Louth James Farrelly
V Meath Raymond Galligan
V Cork James Farrelly
V Down Raymond Galligan
And now Farrelly back in. I recall Farrelly at U21 level a very good keeper also.

Clarke selected to start i see when rumored he wouldn't. Ourselves and Cavan are scoring more or less the same in the 5 games so far while Cavan have a better defensive record which is why you are currently ahead of us in the table. It all makes for a very intriguing contest Sunday.

Farrelly is the better shot stopper. Galligan has the better kick out. Not much between them and Mattie is right to give both game time.

Good luck to the boys tomorrow. I've a sneaky suspicion we might pip it. However I think killian starting is key to this. Ros look dodgy at fb and we should have edge in the middle if gearoid is roaming around there. Obviously their inside forwards are very good and if they get on a lot of ball we will be in bother. Still think we can win it.

It will be a hard game for if Roscommon get the goal chances Down had Cavan will struggle to get a result. Wit reference to the goal keepers the real advantage is that Galligan can score long range frees and in fairness made three great point blank saves last week these details cannot be ignored. With respect to Farrelly I feel Galligan would get the nod for me. Cork now gone out of the equation It's between the top three Tipp Cavan and Roscommon so a win tomorrow we are promoted a loss and a win for Tipp and Roscommon all would be on 9 points and score differences come into play. Good luck tomorrow Sunday the 18th March 2018 make it a memorable day.
