Tyrone's Cathal McShane celebrates his goal against Dublin at Croke Park

Ahead of tomorrow’s round 7 games, Kevin McStay is predicting a Kerry versus Tyrone Allianz FL Division 1 final.

The ex-Roscommon manager believes Kerry will prove too strong for his former charges at Dr Hyde Park and that Mickey Harte & Co will edge out Galway on home soil.

His native Mayo are also in the frame for a final place but he thinks Monaghan could scupper their chances.

“Kerry are going to be in the final. They will ensure they get there by beating Roscommon who, nevertheless, will be competitive,” he told RTE Radio's Saturday Sport.

“I have a fancy that Tyrone will come through. I think they will pick up the points against Galway and I also think a big favour will be done by Monaghan.

“It's been neck and neck between Mayo and Monaghan in recent seasons and while both have a lot to play for, Monaghan's need on this occasion is greater. They have a lot on the line in terms of avoiding relegation.”
