JACK'S BELL WARNING; GAA: DOWN UNDER 'DEBUTANTS' READY FOR THEIR NEXT FACE-OFF DERRY v KERRY NFL DIV 1, BELLAGHY, 2.30, TG4 TV.

JACK O'CONNOR believes Derry will give his Kerry side an ever tougher test than they got from Tyrone.

The Tyr one game climaxed in a late melee while Ryan McMenamin was banned for eight weeks for flicking Paul Galvin in the groin.

But today's tie represents a repeat of last year's league final which Derry won.

O'Connor said: "Derry are taking us up to Bellaghy - their Gaelic football heartland - and we'd be expecting a fierce battle up there.

They're under a new boss this year as well and that always gives a team an extra lift."

Kerry are without David Moran and Tommy Walsh due to their upcoming U-21 championship duty.

But their loss could be tempered by the senior debut of ex-AFL star Tadhg Kennelly potentially from the start.

Derry are without attacker Paddy Bradley through injury, but fit again trio Kevin McCloy, Niall McCusker and Enda Muldoon could feature for the first time this year.
