Fur­long an in­jury doubt for Sun­day

Bray People - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW'S MAN of the match in Kilkenny, Seánie Fur­long, may be a doubt­ful starter for Sun­day's crunch game against Roscommon.

Fur­long, who was top scorer with 1-7, played through the pain bar­rier in the sec­ond half of Sun­day's match and was with­drawn with eight min­utes to go com­plain­ing of a shoul­der/back in­jury.

It was treated as mi­nor at the time but he took no part in train­ing on Mon­day night and was seen by team spi­nol­o­gist Pat Kelly who treated him for three neck/shoul­der in­juries.

Pat be­lieves that the in­jury is bad enough but he is hopeful that he can get him right in time to take his place on Sun­day

Pat also treated mid­fielder James Stafford, Paul Earls and goalie John Flynn on Mon­day night but is con­fi­dent that all three will be in the start­ing line-up to take on Roscommon in Aughrim on Sun­day.
