There are no changes in personnel but Sligo manager Kevin Walsh has made one positional switch to his side for tomorrow's All-Ireland SFC third round qualifier against Kerry in Tralee (throw-in 5pm).

Walsh announced his side late last night, with the only change in the Yeatsmens' attack.

Mark Breheny once again commands the right half-forward berth alongside Alan Costello, but Costello is now flanked on the other wing by Adrian Marren, with Stephen Coen moving into the full-forward line.

The St. Mary's clubman has been moved into the left corner in the only positional switch, with David Kelly and Eamonn O'Hara again lining out in the full-forward line.

Meanwhile, Sligo boss Kevin Walsh believes that the GAA should seriously consider the journey players and supporters have to make during the qualifiers campaign.

Walsh believes that weaker counties in the qualifiers should have home advantage against the top teams, which may lead to better promotion of the game.

"In particular with the long journey, where they had it a few years ago with the lower-level teams and they got home advantage," he told Radio Kerry.

"You'd get the crowds out in the weaker counties and give them the day out. Maybe it would rise football in the weaker places.

"But those are the rules that are there, just maybe it's something that could be looked at."

SLIGO (SFC v Kerry) - P Greene; P McGovern, N McGuire, N Ewing; M McNamara, R Donovan, J Davey; E Mullen, T Taylor; M Breheny, A Costello, A Marren; D Kelly, E O'Hara, S Coen.
