Kerry manager Peter Keane has revealed that they are monitoring a number of players closely as they return from injury.

The Kingdom have a number of injuries at the moment, but Keane is optimistic that the majority of players will return in the coming weeks.

“We’re minding James (O'Donoghue), it’s player management. If you keep playing the same players, would Shaw have played against Meath? Would he have made his debut and scored two points? Or would Tony Brosnan have got some minutes on the pitch. Would Tommy Walsh have been coming on,” Keane put it to the Kerryman.

“Paudie (Clifford) came in injured and he’s trying to recover. It’s one thing to be injured and, just because your injury is sorted, it could take five, six, seven weeks of training to get up to the level of where you’re at.

“And he hasn’t been in here before, so it might take him that bit little bit longer. He’s training, he has training this morning and it’s just a question of is he ready for it.”
