Anthony Cunningham has made just one change to his Roscommon side as they prepare to face All-Ireland champions Dublin in Croke Park on Saturday.

The second round of the Super 8s takes place in GAA HQ this weekend, with Roscommon taking on Jim Gavin's men at 7pm on Saturday night in the second game of a Group 2 double-header that also features Cork vs Tyrone.

The Connacht champions lost by four points to Mickey Harte's side last weekend, going down 0-17 to 0-13 at Dr Hyde Park. Anthony Cunningham's outfit will need a result in their second outing to keep their hopes of an All-Ireland semi-final place alive, with the Roscommon boss making one change in his forward line to meet the challenge.

Hubert Darcy has dropped out at wing forward and been replaced by Brian Stack, a move that Cunningham made after just 25 minutes against Tyrone. Roscommon are looking to advance to the All-Ireland semi-final for the first time since 1991.
