CORK hand rookie Anthony Casey his chance in goal in the division 2 top-of-the-table game with leaders Cavan at Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Sunday, throw-in 1pm.
The Kiskeam and CIT custodian becomes the third player to wear the number one jersey following on from Mark White initially and more lately Ryan Price, who is on the bench.
Casey is one of five changes in personnel from the team which saw off Louth in the last match.
Micheal McSweeney returns at left corner-back instead of Sean Wilson, who was injured in training last weekend, while Brian O’Driscoll comes in for Conor Dorman at centre-back.
Cillian O’Hanlon teams up with captain Ian Maguire at midfield with Ruairi Deane moving from there to left half-forward to the exclusion of Kevin O’Driscoll.
Kevin Flahive, who has played in the half-back line, is now at right half-forward with Sean White switching to centre-forward instead of Michael Hurley, who replaces Stephen Sherlock in the inside line.
Cian Kiely, who impressed when scoring 1-1 on his debut against Louth, is retained at left half-back.
