Manager Brian Mc Iver has made six changes to his Derry side for Saturday's game with Dublin at Croke Park.
Emmett Bradley at midfield and Liam Mc Goldrick at half back get their first starts of the year.
James Kielt is fit to line out while the other three changes are Danny Heavron, Conor McAtamney and Michael McIver.
Derry sit bottom of the table without a victory this year and are favourites for the drop.
Defeat to the Dubs would ensure a drop to Division 2 next year.
