THE Limerick senior football management have announced an unchanged team for Saturday’s All Ireland SFC Qualifier against Sligo.

The round 3A Qualifier has a 4.00 start in Markievicz Park with a place in the last 12 of the championship up for grabs.

Limerick were already in Markievicz this season when Sligo were narrow winners in the round one game in Division Three of the National Football League.

Limerick manager John Brudair has selected the same starting unit that took the field against Antrim in the Gaelic Grounds last weekend.

Limerick have played games three games to-date, Tipperary, London and Antrim and all in the Gaelic Grounds.

All three games have also seen Limerick start with different line-ups.

Indeed Limerick have used a remarkable 26 players in this championship.

Victory on Saturday will book a round four clash with either Cork or the loser of the Connacht SFC final between Galway and Mayo. The next round is scheduled for July 26.

LIMERICK: Brian Scanlon; Mark O’Riordan, Johnny McCarthy, Sean O’Dea; Iain Corbett, Paudie Browne, Pa Ranahan; Tom Lee, John Galvin; Gearoid Hegarty, Danny Neville, Seanie Buckley; Ger Collins, Killian Phair, Ian Ryan.
