Paul Mannion is confident he will be fit to feature for Dublin in Saturday's Allianz Football League Division 1 clash with Monaghan.
Mannion emerged as a doubt for the Monaghan game after he suffered a quad injury during UCD's Sigerson Cup final win over DCU in Belfast at the weekend, but he is keen to play for the All-Ireland champions.
"I felt a little tweak but hopefully it's nothing too serious. I'll go back and talk to the physios and get it assessed but hopefully it won't keep me out," Mannion is quoted as saying in the Irish Independent.
Having missed last year's successful All-Ireland campaign, Mannion is eager to make an impression and hopes injury does not cause him to miss out.
"It's frustrating. There's never a good time to get injured and after not being involved last year I want to play as much as possible," he said.
"Personally, fitness-wise, I've been feeling good and I have enjoyed it so far. And this (Sigerson) is definitely a nice start to the year."
