Mayo have made two changes in the defence for this Sunday's Connacht final clash with Sligo at Dr Hyde Park.

Ger Cafferkey and Donal Vaughan are drafted into the full-back line having come off the bench in the semi-final win over rivals Galway last month.

At corner back, Cafferkey replaces Chris Barrett after an impressive cameo in Salthill, while Vaughan has a new role as he starts at full-back ahead of Kevin Keane.

Keane, who started at full-back in the 1-15 to 2-8 win over Galway, is reported to have picked up a leg injury in a training game last weekend.

MAYO (SF v Sligo): David Clarke; Ger Cafferkey, Donal Vaughan, Keith Higgins (c); Lee Keegan, Tom Cunniffe, Colm Boyle; Séamus O'Shea, Tom Parsons; Diarmuid O'Connor, Aidan O'Shea, Kevin McLoughlin; Andy Moran, Cillian O'Connor, Jason Doherty.
