Kerry boss Eamon Fitzmaurice has once again made defensive changes ahead of their must-win Super 8s clash against Kildare.

The Kingdom must beat the Lilywhites and hope that Monaghan lose to Galway in Salthill if they are to progress to the semi-final of this year's All Ireland.

Jason Foley and Killian Young come in for Ronan Shanahan and Mark Griffin while Micheál Burns starts in attack ahead of Kevin McCarthy. James O'Donoghue is once again named on the bench.

Mickey Harte has named the same 15 that lost out to Dublin in their last outing for their hugely-anticipated winner-takes-all clash against Donegal in Ballbofey.

Kerry (v Kiladare): B Kelly: J Foley, P Crowley, T O'Sullivan; P Murphy, K Young, G White (captain); D Moran, J Barry; M Burns, S O'Shea, S O'Brien; D Clifford, P Donaghy, P Geaney.

Tyrone (v Donegal): Niall Morgan; Michael McKernan, Ronan McNamee, Hugh Pat McGeary; Tiernan McCann, Frank Burns, Peter Harte; Colm Cavanagh, Padraig Hampsey; Mattie Donnelly, Niall Sludden, Conor Meyler; Cathal McShane, Richard Donnelly, Connor McAliskey.
