In form Aidan O'Shea will make his 100th appearance for Mayo when they take on Cork in tomorrow's All Ireland football qualifier round 4A in the Gaelic Grounds (5pm).

The All Star forward has been inspirational for Mayo over the past two matches since he recovered fully from an injury and tomorrow will be his 46th championship appearance (54 in the league).

Tom Parsons is the only change for Stephen Rochford's men from their win over Clare as he comes in for Donal Vaughan.

Cork, meanwhile, have made five changes to their starting 15 with Eoin Cadagon coming back in for Kevin Crowley.

Barry O’Driscoll, Donncha O’Connor, Colm O’Driscoll and John O’Rourke will all line out for the Rebels.

Cork v Mayo (Gaelic Grounds 5pm LIVE on Sky).
