Kerry are set to welcome Armagh to Austin Stack Park this Saturday for round four of the Allianz National Football League. In what has been a slow start to the season for last year's All-Ireland champions, Kerry have lost two of their opening three games, suffering an unexpected loss in Mayo last weekend. The rocky start leaves Kerry a point behind Armagh in the standings meaning Kerry will need a draw or win to overtake them on the division one table. We have all the information on how to watch Kerry v Armagh right here.

How to watch Kerry v Armagh
The game will be broadcast live on RTE 2 with coverage beginning at 16:40 ahead of the 17:00 throw-in.
Fourth-placed Armagh sit just a single point ahead of Kerry as the two sides prepare to face off this Saturday. Kerry sit in fifth with just the two points after winning just one of their opening three games.
The Kingdom took on Donegal in week one where they fell short by just a point however, they bounced right back in round two and it seemed like the Kerry we all know were back when they thrashed Monaghan 3-16 to 0-14, despite that comeback it wasn't to be for the green and gold against Kevin McStay's Mayo. McStay's side won out comfortably in a game that finished 2-14 to 1-10, with Kerry simply unable to keep up with the intensity of Mayo's performance. After the rocky start and underwhelming performance against Mayo, all eyes will be on Jack O'Connor to see if his side can find form.

On the other side of the draw, Armagh have had a mixed back of results. Starting off strongly Armagh saw off Monaghan by two points in round one. Despite the strong start Armagh have been unable to maintain it and struggled since then, adding a loss and draw to their record, to make it just one win from three games. Their second-round encounter with Mayo saw them fight hard for a draw that finished seventeen points apiece, while last weekend saw them travel to Roscommon where they lost by three, a Roscommon goal proving to be the difference in the end.
These two sides last met in round six of the league last year, in a tight encounter that saw Kerry overcome Armagh by three points, again a Kerry goal proving to be the difference between the sides. As both teams struggle to find rhythm and form this season, they'll have to pick up their performances this weekend if they want to move towards the top half of the table.
Kerry names a VERY strong team to play Armagh with David Clifford and Seanie O'Shea back in the starting team for the first time this season.
