DUBLIN MANAGER JIM Gavin has named his team for tomorrow’s Allianz League final against Kerry, with the starting XV showing four changes to the one which beat Monaghan last weekend.

Bernard Brogan, Diarmuid Connolly, Cian O’Sullivan and Darren Daly all return to the side as Dublin chase their 13th league title at Croke Park tomorrow.

After coming off the bench in Clones last week, Brogan and Connolly will be unleashed from the off by Gavin at GAA HQ while O’Sullivan and Daly come in for Kevin McManamom and David Byrne.

The other players to drop out are Niall Scully and Conor McHugh.

The All-Ireland champions extended their unbeaten run in the league and championship to 36 games last week and hold the upper hand over Kerry having not lost to Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s men since the 2015 league campaign.

The two sides, who also met in the 2016 league final, drew 0-13 to 0-13 in last month’s clash in Tralee.
