Team news: Stakes are high as Kerry welcome Westmeath to Tralee

SUNDAY – Kerry (H) v Westmeath, 2.00pm, Kerins O’Rahillys, Tralee, (K Delahunty, Tipperary) 

The stakes couldn’t be much higher as Kerry host Westmeath in Tralee.

The Kingdom were on three points before those were deducted this week for fielding an unregistered player in their victory over Mayo in February.

That leaves them pointless and facing into a crucial shoot-out with basement team Westmeath.

If there’s a loser on the day, that team will be relegated and playing Division 2 football next year.

Westmeath suffered a big defeat to Donegal in round 3, and lost out by ten points against Cork, but they’ve given a decent account of themselves in the matches with Mayo, Dublin and Monaghan.

Kerry’s last outing saw them concede 6-11 against Donegal, and confidence levels are low. The winner-takes-all feel to this one should bring out the best in both teams.
