Kerry to buckle Down

KERRY v DOWN (Tralee, Tonight, 7.0)

IT has to happen, doesn't it? Kerry have to win a match in the League and if you were to pick one of their programme as a banker before the competition started, this would probably be it.

In all seriousness, it also needs to be it, with Cork and Tyrone coming down the tracks and neither, we imagine, with much sympathy for Kerry's plight.

Tomás Ó Sé will miss one match through suspension but there are whispers of returns for Declan O'Sullivan, Paul Galvin and Anthony Maher to the Kerry bench.

It's simply the nature of his job, but the pressure is building on Eamonn Fitzmaurice and we fully expect him to release a valve in Tralee tonight.

ODDS: Kerry 4/7, Draw 15/2, Down 15/8
