KERRY BOSS EAMON FITZMAURICE has made two changes to his team for this weekend’s Allianz Football League clash with Cork.

The Kingdom go into Sunday’s meeting with their Munster rivals with two changes in their forward line. Fitzmaurice has brought in Donnnchadh Walsh and Daithí Casey to freshen up his forwards after last weekend’s 2-15 to 0-13 win over Westmeath.

Jonathan Lyne and Bryan Sheehan drop out of the starting 15. They are joined on the bench by Darran O’Sullivan and Pa Kilkenny, who returns to the panel after a period on the sidelines with injury.

Kieran O’Leary will captain Kerry while James O’Donoghue, who also found the net against Westmeath, is named right corner forward.

KERRY: Brian Kelly; Paul Murphy, Mark Griffin, Shane Enright; Peter Crowley, Fionn Fitzgerald, Marc O’Sé; Anthony Maher, David Moran; Donnchadh Walsh, Daithí Casey, Kieran O’Leary (capt.); Stephen O’Brien, Paul Geaney, James O’Donoghue.

Substitutes: Brendan Kealy, Bryan Sheehan, Jonathan Lyne, Darran O’Sullivan, Johnny Buckley, Aidan O’Mahony, Jack Sherwood, Barry John Keane, Michael Geaney, Brian McGuire, Pa Kilkenny.
