JOHN MISKELLA has been recalled by Cork for tomorrow’s All-Ireland second round football qualifier against Cavan in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
The Ballincollig man is named at right half-back in a team which shows three changes from the Munster football semi-final replay against Kerry at the same venue on June 13.
Noel O’Leary is the player who makes way for Miskella – at right half-back, while Fintan Goold is preferred to Donncha O’Connor – named on the right wing with Pearse O’Neill chosen in the centre.
The other change sees Colm O’Neill chosen in the left corner instead of Paul Kerrigan.
Miskella, who missed the league because of injury, made an appearance as the 15th man in extra time against Kerry, following the dismissal of Graham Canty after a second yellow card. However, he was later replaced by O’Leary, who had been taken off earlier (when Eoin Cadogan was introduced).
It represents a rare start for Goold, who has been used more frequently as an impact substitute.
Not unexpectedly, Jason Ryan has kept faith with the Wexford team which defeated London by 19 points in Ruislip for their qualifier against Galway at Pearse Stadium. However, positional alterations see Redmond Barry named in arguably his best position at centre-forward, while Matty Forde will wear the number 14 jersey.
Leitrim manager Mickey Moran makes no fewer than six changes for the meeting with Kildare in Newbridge. Gareth Phelan is preferred in goal to Enda Lyons, who played there against Roscommon and two newcomers are included in defence, Ciaran Egan at full-back and Gary Reynolds in the left corner.
The feature of the team is a new full-forward line comprising Philip Howard, Declan Mulhall and Declan Gilhooly.
The Offaly team to take on Waterford in O’Connor Park shows three changes from the first round win over Clare.
John Coughlan, who was sent off against Meath, returns to action and is named at midfield. Edenderry star Sean Pender, 21, is chosen at left corner back, while Graham Guilfoyle, 19, who plays his football with the Clare club, comes in at right half-forward (resulting in the move of Ciaran McManus to the other wing).
Omitted are Brian Geraghty, Paraic Sullivan and John Reynolds.
Derry, who are away to Westmeath, welcome back Kevin McGuckian, but Fergal Doherty is ruled out by injury and Paddy Bradley is again absent following his disagreement with the management.
Gary O’Kane goes to centre-back, resulting in Barry McGoldrick being switched to the half-forard line. And, with Enda Muldoon brought out to midfield to partner Joe Diver, James Kielt is selected at centre-forward.
