Allianz Football League team news: Brian Kelly gets Kerry opportunity

Goalkeeper Brian Kelly, Aidan O’Mahony, and Jonathan Lyne are the three inclusions as Kerry opt against wholesale changes for tomorrow’s visit of Roscommon to Fitzgerald Stadium in Division 1 of the Allianz Football League (2pm).

Allianz Football League team news: Brian Kelly gets Kerry opportunity

Despite an underwhelming performance against Dublin last week, manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice has afforded most of those involved a chance to put in better displays. Kelly replaces Brendan Kealy in goal, with Aidan O’Mahony coming into the half-back line instead of Fionn Fitzgerald. Lyne, a wing-back in last year’s All-Ireland final loss to Dublin, is picked at number 10, as Philip O’Connor misses out.

Another side defeated last week, Mayo, made two alterations since losing to Cork. Aidan O’Shea, a first-half substitute after initially being named as a starter, is picked at centre-forward, while Mikey Sweeney, who kicked two points after his introduction, are the two players brought in. Lee Keegan, who sustained a concussion, and Kevin McLoughlin, are the pair to miss out. Dublin are unchanged after their win over Kerry.

In Division 2, Tyrone have four changes from the team that beat Cavan in their opener. Goalkeeper Niall Morgan, Ronan McNamee, Padraig McNulty, and Darren McCurry replace Mickey O’Neill, Mark Bradley, Cathal McShane, and Lee Brennan.
