Cork manager Brain Cuthbert has made wholesale changes ahead of Saturday’s All-Ireland SFC qualifier against Sligo in Tullamore, making six changes to the line-up which was annihilated by Kerry in the Munster SFC final.

The Rebels attack is the area subject to most change, with Mark Collins (centre-forward), Colm O'Driscoll (left half-forward), Colm O'Neill (right corner-forward) and Donal Og Hodnett (left corner-forward) drafted into the starting line-up.

Brian O'Driscoll has been selected at left-half back to shore up a defence which conceded 24 points against the Kingdom.

Captain Michael Shields and James Loughrey swap roles in a positional change, with the former making the switch from right corner-back to right half-back.

Ian Maguire has been named in midfield.

Damien Cahalane, Fintan Goold, Patrick Kelly, Daniel Goulding, Barry O’Driscoll and John O’Rourke all drop to the bench, while Donncha O'Connor and Kevin Crowley were not considered for the O'Connor Park encounter due to injury.
