DANIEL GOULDING WILL start up front for Cork in next Sunday’s pivotal Allianz Football League Division 1 clash with Kerry in Tralee.

The Munster heavyweights are both looking to cement semi-final spots, with Kerry better placed at this point in time, two points clear of Cork and boasting a superior scoring difference.

Goulding’s inclusion is the only change in personnel from the team that beat Down last Sunday, with U21 star Peter Kelleher dropping out of the starting line-up.

Cork are one of four teams in Division 1 who could claim a place in the top four, or be relegated on Sunday.

Meanwhile, hosts Kerry have made four changes in personnel from the team that beat Monaghan.

Brendan Kealy starts of Brian Kelly as boss Eamonn Fitzmaurice continues to rotate his goalkeepers.

Killian Young returns from injury for the first time since the Roscommon game in round 2 and is named ahead of Aidan O’Mahony.

Elsewhere, Padraig O’Connor, who started in round 3 against Down, comes in to the half-back line in place of Fionn Fitzgerald and up front, Alan Fitzgerald replaces Darran O’Sullivan.

O’Mahony and O’Sullivan both picked up knocks in the Monaghan win and were not considered for Sunday.

Tommy Walsh returns to the matchday panel for the first time since sustaining an injury against Down.
