Kieran McGeeney to face old team after Round 4B Qualifier draw

Kieran McGeeney to face old team after Round 4B Qualifier draw

Monaghan will get a chance to avenge their Ulster championship defeat to Down while Kieran McGeeney will have the plot the downfall of his former team when Armagh take on beaten Leinster finallists Kildare in Round 4B of the All-Ireland football qualifiers.

McGeeney, Armagh's 2002 All-Ireland winning captain, brought Kildare to an All-Ireland semi-final in 2010 but his tenure ended in controversial circumstances in 2013 after losing a ballot by county delegates by one vote.

Kildare will be without impressive midfielder Kevin Feely after he picked up his third black card of the year against Dublin yesterday and captain Eoin Doyle looks set to have a procedure performed on a broken thumb.

No beaten Leinster finalist has gone on to win their Round 4 qualifer since the Lilywhites did it in 2009.

Monaghan suffered a shock Ulster semi-final defeat to Down in their Ulster semi-final but have come through qualifiers against Wexford and Carlow and will relish the chance to gain some revenge.

Both matches will be contested on the weekend of 29-30 July, with venues, times and dates to be confirmed by the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) on Monday afternoon.

All-Ireland Round 4B Qualifier Draw:
