Michael Fennelly and Richie Hogan are in a race to be fit for Kilkenny's Leinster SHC semi-final clash with Dublin on June 11.
Fennelly picked up a hamstring injury during Ballyhale Shamrocks’ win over Danesfort in Callan on Saturday, while Hogan suffered a hand injury in the same game.
Both players are expected to train with Kilkenny this week but they will be assessed before a decision is made on their fitness.
“Michael Fennelly has been minding himself all along. He played for the county recently and came off there as well halfway through, so I’d expect it’s something similar," Kilkenny PRO Seamus Reade is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner.
“Richie Hogan had some kind of a hand injury. I don’t think it’s been assessed yet, I think the swelling has to go down. But he certainly hasn’t been ruled out at this stage. They were out with the clubs and are back in training (with Kilkenny) tonight.”
