THERE ARE TWO changes in the Kerry team to face Dublin in Division on Saturday night, with Dara Moynihan and David Moran coming into the side.

Youngster Moynihan replaces Jonathan Lyne at wing-forward, while Moran is named to start at full-forward with Killian Spillane dropping out of the team. 

Moran, a former All-Star midfielder, made his first appearance of the campaign off the bench last weekend. Otherwise, the Kingdom are unchanged from their three-point win over Cavan last weekend. 

Tyrone boss Mickey Harte has named his team for their top flight trip to Roscommon, making just one change from their loss to Mayo.

Cathal McShane is introduced in attack for Frank Burns, who played a full 60 minutes with Ulster University on Wednesday night. 

The All-Ireland finalists are searching for their first points of the 2018 campaign, having lost their opening two games to Kerry and Mayo.

The Kildare side to face Fermanagh in Sunday’s Division 2 meeting has also been revealed.

Cian O’Neill makes one switch, with Aaron Masterson replacing Fionn Dowling in the team. Fergal Conway reverts to centre-forward in make room for the Moorefield man at midfield.
