People are speculating that Paddy Andrews will start for Dublin in the All-Ireland final replay

Jim Gavin has named the same 15 that started the drawn game but will the same players line out today?

Both managers have elected to show loyalty to the teams who started the last day but not everyone is accepting that Paddy Andrews will start on the bench.

The St Brigid's man made an immediate impact after his introduction in the drawn game, posting two first half-points and breaking Dublin's barren spell of scores which lasted for the first half hour of the game.

Thus far, he hasn't shown enough evidence to earn his starting jersey but many feel there are players in the starting team who could be sacrificed for Andrews.

Bernard Brogan's scoring return from the inside forward line has diminished since last season. Similarly, Paul Flynn's is experiencing a poor run of form from the half-forward line compared with previous years. Following an impressive season from both pay and placed balls, Dean Rock's performance in the All-Ireland final also attracted criticism.

Andrews could operate from any spot in attack and several Twitter commentators are speculating that the 28-year-old will start today.
