Mayo's Aidan O'Shea will start Sunday's Connacht football championship semi-final against Galway on the bench.

Stephen Rochford has made just once change to the side that defeated Sligo in the quarter-final, with Jason Doherty coming in for the injured Conor O'Shea.

O'Shea damaged his ankle while training with the Sligo All Star basketball team in January and didn’t start any of Mayo's Allianz League games although he was introduced after 43 minutes in the win over Sligo.

Andy Moran will make his 150th appearance in the Pearse Stadium clash.
