It will be their second meeting this year, the sides already clashed in Division 2 of the Allianz National Football League with Meath securing 1-12 1-07 win in Cusack Park on St Patrick’s Day.

Meelick’s Kevin Harnett is still out of action through injury with Conall Ó hÁiniféin expected to miss the tie having sustained damage to his shoulder in Saturday’s win.
