Lynch sidelined for Meath qualifier
Kildare midfielder Hugh Lynch has been ruled out of Saturday's All-Ireland SFC Qualifier clash with Meath.
Lynch suffered a knee injury in training on Thursday night and will miss the Leinster derby at Pairc Tailteann - the second championship meeting of the sides this season.
John Doyle has been passed fit to play as the Lilywhites bid to repeat their provincial championship success against the Royals.
The GAA has advised supporters intending to attend the game to obtain tickets as soon as possible as it is expected to be a sell-out.
