Preparations continue for Cavan and Donegal ahead of Ulster Final

As Cavan and Donegal prepare for their Ulster final this weekend, it is Declan Bonner who has the main injury concern as he looks to be planning without Stephen Mc Menamin.

The tight marking defender lasted only a matter of minutes in their comfortable win over Armagh on Saturday past, coming off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

With the short time span between that victory and this weekends final, the Red Hughs clubman is facing a race to be fit.

It is more positive news for Cavan with Michael Graham not reporting any major injury concerns but as expected with it been a 6th weekend of competitive action coming up, there is a lot of “Tired bodies”

Having had 2 league games plus a preliminary round match in the Ulster championship, it has been 5 weekends of competitive action for the Breffni side with another to come, now that they are contesting the final.

In the 3 Ulster outings so far, Cavan have had to stage comebacks in the 2nd half to ensure their progress.

On Sunday past seen them come from been 10 points behind at one stage to Down to claim the victory by 1.

Padraig Faulkner noted it is a case of who wants it the most
