Monaghan boss Malachy O'Rourke has kept Conor McManus on the bench for the third game running ahead of tomorrow's Allianz FL clash with Galway in Inniskeen.
The three-time All-Star is yet to start a game this season, having played the 'super-sub' role in his first two outings.
Drew Wylie, Neil McAdam and Ryan McAnespie are restored to the side, as part of three changes from the 1-12 to 0-13 defeat to Roscommon.
Meanwhile, newcomer Stephen O'Hanlon is suspended after his straight red at Dr Hyde Park last weekend.
Monaghan (Allianz FL v Galway): Rory Beggan; Kieran Duffy, Drew Wylie, Ryan Wylie; Dessie Ward, Barry Kerr, Colin Walshe; Darren Hughes, Neil McAdam; Ryan McAnespie, Dermot Malone, Fintan Kelly; Shane Carey, Jack McCarron, Micheal Bannigan.
Subs: Shane Garland, Vincent Corey, Dessie Mone, James Mealiff, Owen Duffy, Thomas Kerr, Gavin Doogan, Conor McCarthy, Conor McManus, David Garland, Barry McGinn.
