Colm Collins has announced his starting fifteen to take on Meath in the Allianz National Football League Division 2 tie.

Originally due to take place on Saturday afternoon, the refixture is scheduled to go ahead on Sunday at 2pm in Cusack Park.

Clare’s team is unchanged from that which lost by three points to Fermanagh in their last outing two weeks ago. Meeth manager Andy McEntee also has opted to make no changes to his side from their one point round five win over Kildare.

On Saturday, Donegal defeated Cork while Kildare held off Tipperary meaning a home win for Clare would be of major benefit in their attempts to secure their Division 2 status otherwise their final round meeting with Tipperary will decide who goes down. With Armagh beating Fermanagh, the pressure has been upped on teams such as Meath in the fight for promotion to the top tier.
