PETER KEANE HAS named the Kerry side that will take on Cavan in the second round of the Allianz League on Sunday at Kingspan Breffni Park [throw-in, 2pm].

Keane has elected to make just one change which prevailed in their opening round against Tyrone, as Killan Spillane comes into the Kerry attack.

Spillane — who is a nephew of Kerry legend Pat — has been named to start ahead of Dara Moynihan who drops to the bench.

His brother Adrian has been selected at midfield once again where he will partner Jack Barry.

Sean O’Shea — who posted 0-6 the last day including a superb score from a sideline — takes up his position at centre-forward again, while Tommy Walsh continues to be held in reserve. 

After defeating All-Ireland finalists Tyrone last weekend, the Kingdom will be aiming to maintain that winning momentum on Sunday.

The Cavan team has also been named with one change coming in from the side that lost out to Galway in the first round.

Christopher Conroy is named at corner back as Barry Fortune drops to the bench.

In Division 2, Kildare have also named the team that will face Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday [throw-in, 1pm].

Midfielder Kevin Feely was withdrawn in their first-round match against Armagh but he has been selected again at midfield and will team up with Fergal Conway.
