See Emmett’s injury update below:
Kilian is recovering from a knee injury sustained on our pre-season camp at FOTA Island. Kilian will be meeting with a consultant soon and we expect him to return to action in less than a month’s time.
Jason fractured his fifth metatarsal against Shamrock Rovers at Tallaght Stadium and he is looking at 6 weeks on the sideline recovering.
Aaron did light training on Thursday morning by himself and he will be put through a late fitness test before the Sligo Rovers game.
Andy took a heavy knock in the Cockhill Celtic game and there was damage done to the ligaments in his right ankle. His expected rehabilitation time is 5 weeks.
David trained with the rest of the squad yesterday after missing the Shamrock Rovers and Cockhill Celtic games and he looks to have recovered from his knee injury and will be available for selection against Sligo Rovers.
