James Horan has selected his starting 15 to be named in the programme for Saturday’s Connacht Senior Football Championship clash with Sligo.

Horan has had to deal with the loss of both Cillian and Diarmuid O’Connor and made four changes to the side who started against Clare in their last outing in the league semi-final two weeks ago.

Into the starting 15 come Michael Plunkett, Conor Loftus, Eoghan McLaughlin and Darren McHale.

Saturday will mark Kevin McLoughlin’s 150th appearance for Mayo in league and championship, becoming the third Mayo player to do so after Keith Higgins and Andy Moran.

The game will also be captain Aidan O’Shea’s 70th championship appearance and Lee Keegan’s 60th championship bow.
