Former Kerry star Tomás Ó Sé doesn't expect too many surprises in a bumper weekend of football qualifier action.

The five-time All-Ireland winner told RTÉ Sport that he anticipates dethroned provincial champions Mayo and Monaghan will bounce back against  Fermanagh and Longford respectively.


All-Ireland SFC Qualifiers Round 2A
Derry v Meath, Owenbeg, 2.30pm

"It's hard for Meath to try and beat the Dubs and then get drawn away to Derry," said Ó Sé. "They've always struggled going there.

"Derry were very poor against Tyrone but if Meath can get their running game going I'll go for Meath."

Cavan v Carlow, Kingspan Breffni Park, 5pm

"Cavan were taught a lesson by Tyrone last week.

"Even though they're out a week later they will have too much for Division 4 Carlow.

"Terry Hyland will have them up and running again I feel."

Round 2B
Cork v Limerick, Semple Stadium, 3pm

"Cork are come off a humiliating defeat to Tipperary. They've shipped a lot of criticism but I think they're well ahead of Limerick.

"Limerick had a good win against Antrim but I'm going for Cork to win. 

Mayo v Fermanagh, MacHale Park, 3.30pm (Live on RTÉ One)

"I think Mayo weren't tuned in for their match against Galway.

"It was a huge game. They were beaten by a hungrier team on the day.

"A lot of soul-searching needed to be done and I believe they'll have a big say in the Championship yet.

"Fermanagh have been making strides but had no answer to Donegal and I think Mayo will progress."

Monaghan v Longford, Clones, 6.30pm

"Longford had a huge victory away to Down so they have nothing to lose going to Clones.

"Monaghan lost to Donegal obviously and Malachy O'Rourke has said that they'll be up for this.

"They're a team with experience and I think they could still take a big scalp in this year's championship."

Kildare v Offaly, Newbridge, 6.30pm

"Both teams have lost to Westmeath.

"Kildare were really poor in their second-half performances against Wexford and Westmeath.

"If they just go for it and stop bogging themselves down with tactics and systems, I'd go with Kildare."

Round 2A

Clare v Laois, Cusack Park, Ennis, 2pm

"This is a very hard game to call. 

"I saw Clare play Kery and they caused Kerry problems running at them. They scored 17 points.

"Laois had highs and lows against Dublin and Armagh. They need to be more consistent but I think if they hit their highs I'd go for them here."
