DONEGAL HAVE been dealt further injury blows with confirmation that Neil McGee and Paddy McGrath are to miss this afternoon’s Super 8 game against Kerry at Croke Park.

Rumours have been circulating about the fitness of the 2012 All-Ireland winning defenders in recent days and neither will feature against the Kingdom.
While McGee had been named to start, his place in the full-back line will be taken Eamonn Doherty.
McGrath is also absent completely from the match-day 26-man panel.
Last week, McGrath was a late withdrawal for the win over Meath in Ballybofey and has not recovered sufficiently.
Declan Bonner’s men are also without Eoghan Ban Gallagher, who sustained a broke ankle in training during the week.
Caolan Ward has come into the half-back line to take the place vacated by Gallagher.
In a further change, Eoin McHugh is in for Paul Brennan.
Donegal: Shaun Patton; Odhrán McFadden-Ferry, Eamonn Doherty Stephen McMenamin; Ryan McHugh, Caolan Ward, Eoin McHugh; Hugh McFadden, Jason McGee; Ciarán Thompson, Niall O’Donnell, Jamie Brennan; Patrick McBrearty, Michael Murphy, Michael Langan.Tags:
