Roscommon have made one change to their team for Sunday's Connacht Championship Semi-Final against Sligo in Dr. Hyde Park.

The team shows one change from the team that beat Leitrim in Carrick-on-Shannon last month. Senan Kilbride returns to replace Diarmuid Murtagh who is unavailable due to injury.

Last year, the two sides met at the same stage in Markievicz Park. Sligo won the game by four points before losing heavily to Mayo in the final. The winners of this weekend's game will meet either Mayo of Galway in the Nestor Cup.

Roscommon have already defeated New York and Leitrim in this year's Championship, while Sligo have yet to make their Championship bow.

Off the Ball will have live commentary of the game on Sunday from Dr. Hyde Park. Dave McIntyre will be joined by former Mayo manager James Horan, Anthony Moyles and Tomas Quinn in Roscommon.

1. Geoffrey Claffey – Castlerea/St. Kevins
