Sligo unlikely to be punished for introducing 7 substitutes in qualifier with Antrim

Sligo now look unlikely to be punished for the apparent fielding of seven substitutes during Saturday's qualifier win over Antrim.

Their seventh change came just before the final whistle of their 0-22 to 3-7 win.

But Sligo manager Niall Carew insists an earlier change was a blood sub which would not count toward's a team's total.

It's believed that blood substitution has also been recorded as such in the referee's official report.

Sligo will face Meath in round 2A of the qualifiers following this morning's draw.

Elsewhere, Mayo's first qualifier is a home game against Derry.

Laois face Clare, and Donegal take on Longford.
