Fitzmaurice keeps Kieran Donaghy in reserve for Kerry

DESPITE his game-saving heroics last week there is no place for Kieran Donaghy in Kerry's starters for their All-Ireland semi-final replay with Mayo.

Manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice has named an unchanged team for tomorrow's big rematch in Limerick.

The Austin Stacks man, who has battled back from two injury setbacks this season, came off the bench for his first appearance of the year last Sunday.

Donaghy originally came in to midfield in the 59th minute, but when he went to full-forward and reprised his high-fielding antics of old, his partnership with James O'Donoghue proved vital to Kerry battling back from five points down.

KERRY (SF v Mayo) - B Kelly; M O Se, A O'Mahony, S Enright; P Murphy, P Crowley, F Fitzgerald (capt); A Maher, D Moran; M Geaney, J Buckley, D Walsh; S O'Brien, P Geaney, J O'Donoghue.
