Armagh were beaten by Meath in their opener in Navan last weekend, 1-10 to 0-8, and a second defeat in succession in what promises to be a highly competitive division would be quite damaging.
Aaron Findon had been selected for the game at midfield alongside Ethan Rafferty and indirectly replaces Brendan Donaghy in the only change from the side that lost last week.
Cavan and Derry will also meet today, one of several Ulster derby games that will take place during the course of the Division Two season.
Derry faced a real battle in their opener against Fermanagh. The Erne County were well in the game at half-time, but Derry upped the tempo in the second half and goals from Cailean O’Boyle and Mark Lynch powered Damien Barton’s side to a deserved victory.
Div 2: Armagh v Laois; Cavan v Derry
Div 1: Donegal v Cork, Monaghan v Down
Div 2: Fermanagh v Meath, Galway v Tyrone
