The group stage of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship continues this weekend with Dublin and Roscommon facing off in their first game in Group 3. Here's all you need to know about the game.

Where and when is it on?

The match takes place at Croke Park in Dublin with a 4.00pm throw-in on Sunday.

What’s the team news?

Jack McCaffrey’s latest injury setback has ruled him out of any involvement for Dublin in their opening All-Ireland series fixture.

As a consequence, Cian Murphy is now listed to start in defence while another change sees Tom Lahiff named at midfield as an indirect replacement for Niall Scully.

DUBLIN: S Cluxton; D Newcombe, D Byrne, C Murphy; J McCarthy, J Small, L Gannon; B Fenton, T Lahiff; B Howard, S Bugler, C Kilkenny; P Mannion, C O’Callaghan, C Costello.
