Leitrim and Down meet for the first time in the championship with Leitrim still seeking their first win in the qualifiers. It leaves themselves and Waterford as the only counties still waiting for a qualifier win.
In contrast, Down made great use of the second chance last year, advancing from Round 2 of the qualifiers to reach the All-Ireland final where they lost to Cork by a single point.
THE VERY BEST OF LUCK TO THE LEITRIM TEAM AND MAnÓgEMENT ON SATURDAY.
