Galway wait on Mannion scan


Cathal Mannion could miss Galway's Leinster SHC final against Wexford on 2 July with an ankle injury.

The Ahascragh-Fohenagh full forward limped off in the 24th minute of Sunday's 19-point semi-final thrashing of Offaly at O'Moore Park, and will undergo a scan on his left ankle on Monday afternoon.

Joseph Cooney is also a doubt for the final in two weeks' time after failing to recover from an unspecified injury in time to face the Faithful County.

"Cathal went off with what looked like a bad ankle injury. Joe Cooney had an injury coming in to this and didn't make it today," Galway manager Micheal Donoghue said.

"The timeframe on those two isn't concrete yet. We picked up another few knocks today, so we'll see."

Donoghue says his Galway players, who are seeking a first Leinster title since 2012, can deal with their status as All-Ireland favourites following their National League title win over All-Ireland champions Tipperary and their Leinster quarter-final victory over Dublin.

"We just worked really hard on this fixture and the boys did the job. We said weeks ago that all that expectation is all on the outside, with the supporters," he continued.

"The biggest thing from our perspective is that these players concentrate on themselves and no doubt they will do just that now for the next two weeks."
