Fitzgerald will not risk concussed player

Clare manager Davy Fitzgerald will be without one of his top stars for Sunday's Allianz Hurling League Division 1 final but he has refused to reveal which player will be missing.

Fitzgerald has revealed one of his players was diagnosed with concussion following the semi-final win over Kilkenny and the manager is not prepared to risk him for Sunday's final in Thurles.

"The most important thing with this set-up is the player comes first. I'm not going to risk anyone, if I thought it would cause problems down the road," Fitzgerald is quoted as saying in the Irish Independent.

"We have one player who got concussed after the Kilkenny game.

"He's mad to go but I don't think we're going to. He'll be devastated.

"The player is number one, no matter what else happens. Winning hurling games is number two."

Conor Ryan and David McInerney will definitely miss the game through injury, while Fitzgerald will not make a decision on Shane McDonnell's participation until Friday evening.
