Three changes for Cork

Three changes for Cork

John Miskella will make his first Championship start for Cork in 2010, when the Rebels meet Tommy Carr's Cavan side at Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Saturday (throw-in 3pm).

Miskella is one of three changes in personnel to the team that lost to Kerry in last month's Munster SFC semi-final replay.

He replaces Noel O'Leary at right half-back, with Fintan Goold and Colm O'Neill named in attack.

Goold starts in place of Pearse O'Neill at right half-forward, with the Aghada clubman moving to the centre.

Donncha O'Connor is the player to lose out, with Paddy Kelly completing the half-forward line.

Cork manager Conor Counihan has opted for one change from the full-forward formation that started against Kerry, with young full-forward Ciaran Sheehan flanked by Daniel Goulding and Colm O'Neill, who replaces Paul Kerrigan.

CORK (SFC v Cavan): A Quirke; R Carey, G Canty, J O'Sullivan; J Miskella, M Shields, P Kissane; A O'Connor, A Walsh; F Goold, P O'Neill, P Kelly; D Goulding, C Sheehan, C O'Neill
