Sligo recall Kivlehan

Barry Kivlehan is the one new face in the Sligo team for tonight's All-Ireland SFC third round qualifier against Westmeath (Markievicz Park, throw-in 7pm).

The Coolaney-Mullinabreena defender has recovered from the calf muscle injury - sustained in training - which forced him out of last weekend's tight win over neighbours Leitrim.

He will take over from Karol O'Neill at left half-back.

Adrian Marren is the player to lose out - his left corner forward berth has been taken by the versatile O'Neill, who was originally promoted to the starting line-up after the departure of both Jonathan Davey and Brian Curran to Boston for the summer.

Supporters at Markievicz Park tonight will witness the first ever championship clash between Sligo and Westmeath.

The Yeats men, who are bidding to reach the fourth round of the qualifiers for the third time in five seasons, beat Westmeath in the National League in March, winning by 1-13 to 0-09 at the same venue.

SLIGO (SFC v Westmeath) - P Greene; C Harrison, N McGuire (capt), R Donovan; P McGovern, B Egan, B Kivlehan; E O’Hara, T Taylor; J McPartland, M Breheny, P Doohan; D Kelly, S Davey, K O’Neill.
