Cody allays Fogarty injury fears

Midfielder could return next month

Kilkenny boss Brian Cody has allayed fears that midfielder Conor Fogarty could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines through injury.

Fogarty was caught across the shin at the throw-in of the Cats dramatic injury time win over Cork at Pairc Ui Rinn prompting fears that the Erin's Own man could be out for a long time.

However, Cody revealed that x-rays have shown that the injury is not as bad as first feared and that the midfielder could be back for next month's Allianz League quarter-finals.

“Well Conor was a serious worry for us obviously when it happened,” Cody said.

“It was a kind of replica of what happened last year essentially, and you know it was a serious belt he got. He got it in the very same spot as he got it last year, so we’d a real concern about Conor but thankfully the x-rays appear to be all clear.

“Obviously you know he had a fracture last year in that leg and another one this year would have been very, very serious for us.

“Obviously there’s a serious bruising and that but hopefully he won’t be too long out of action.”
