Dublin sweat on Cluxton injury


Dublin captain Stephen Cluxton is a potential doubt for the Leinster SFC final against Laois on 24 June with a back injury.

The Parnells' goalkeeper suffered an injury to his lower back after being taken out by Longford full-forward James McGivney in Sunday's 2-25 to 0-12 Leinster semi-final victory at Croke Park.

It is the first Dublin Championship game the 36-year-old has started but not finished since his sending off in the Round 3 qualifier defeat to Armagh on 5 July 2003.

He was replaced by Ballymun Kickhams' goalkeeper Evan Comerford, who did not have to make a single save all afternoon against a Longford side reduced to 14 man following McGivney's red card.

"He has a lower back injury," Dublin manager Jim Gavin said.

"We will review that now in the next 24 to 48 hours just to assess the situation."

Clontarf wing-back Jack McCaffrey made his first appearance for Dublin since suffering a cruciate ligament injury in last year's All Ireland final win over Mayo in September, while Kilmacud Crokes' centre-back Cian O'Sullivan also featured in the second half on his return from shoulder surgery.

"Jack hasn't played a representative fixture yet, but he has been playing in the background with us for a number of weeks, Cian has as well," Gavin continued.

"It is great to see them back on the pitch, they played their part in the second half, absolutely."

Dean Rock and Paul Mannion scored goals for the All-Ireland champions against Denis Connerton's side.
