Monaghan and Fermanagh expected to be at full strength for Ulster semi-final clash

Sligo manager Cathal Corey has named an unchanged side for the meeting with Galway

MONAGHAN and Fermanagh will confirm their squads today for Sunday's Ulster final and both counties are expected to be at full strength for the Omagh showdown.

Malachy O'Rourke's Farneymen came through a battle royal at Healy Park to beat three in-a-row chasing Ulster champions Tyrone, while Fermanagh had home advantage for their seven-point win over Armagh.

Neither camp reported any significant injury concerns last night.

Meanwhile, Tyrone native Cathal Corey has named an unchanged starting line-up for Sunday's Connacht SFC semi-final against Galway in Salthill.

Corey's Yeatsmen had 10 points to spare over London in their quarter-final at Ruislip. Adrian Marren led the way that day with 1-6 and he will be the focal point of the attack at Pearse Stadium on Sunday in a full-forward line that also includes Kyle Cawley and Pat Hughes. Niall Murphy and Kevin McDonnell continue at midfield while Neil Ewing and Gerard O'Kelly/Lynch are again named in Corey's half-back line.

Meanwhile, former Sligo manager Kevin Walsh has made four changes to his Galway side. David Wynne and Sean Kelly come into the defence from the three-point win over Mayo earlier this month as Eoghan Kerin and Gary O'Donnell make way.

Elsewhere, Eamonn Brannigan starts at right half-forward and Corofin's Ian Burke is named at no 13. Ciaran Duggan and Sean Armstrong miss out after having started in Castlebar.

Galway (v Sligo Connacht SFC semi-final): R Lavelle; D Kyne, SA O'Ceallaigh, D Wynne; C Sweeney, G Bradshaw, S Kelly; P Conroy, T Flynn; E Brannigan, S Walsh, J Heaney; I Burke, D Comer, B McHugh

Sligo (v Galway, Connacht SFC semi-final): A Devaney; C Harrison, E McHugh, R Donovan; N Ewing, A McIntyre, G O'Kelly Lynch, N Murphy, K McDonnell, P O'Connor, L Gaughan, C Henry, K Cawley, P Hughes, A Marren
