This was posted by Owen Cowzer of the Star at 10.20pm on Saturday night, but it is not clear if the comments were made on Friday night or after the scan on Saturday

It's either very re-assuring about Hoban's availability or an excellent bluff

Kenny says Patrick Hoban will play in the FAI Cup final despite injury scare against Bohemians
The Dundalk star was taken off in his side's final league game of the season after going over on his ankle but Kenny expects a full bill of health for the clash with Cork City

STEPHEN KENNY insists that Dundalk’s injury list is nothing to be alarmed about.

And he expects the treatment room to be empty for the FAI Cup final.

Champions Dundalk finished off their league campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Bohemians on Friday night.

But the visiting supporters headed up the M1 afterwards with worries ahead of next Sunday’s meeting with Cork City as Patrick Hoban had to be taken off late in the game with an ankle injury.

He was later helped from the Dundalk dugout to the dressing room and left Dalymount on crutches with his left ankle heavily strapped.

Not only that but Jamie McGrath was pulled from the starting line-up after suffering a groin problem in the warm-up.

And Ronan Murray (ankle) was only fit for the bench, while Robbie Benson (leg) and Seán Gannon (hip) were not involved at all.

Chris Shields and Dean ­Jarvis were excused as their partners are expecting babies.

Kenny joked that the list of absentees meant he was glad that Dundalk did not need a result on Friday.

But he is confident that all will be fit for next week.

He said: “Patrick just went over on his ankle in a challenge but he’ll be OK. It was just a precaution. We strapped it up just so he stays off it.

“Jamie tweaked his groin a bit when doing some shooting before the game so we decided not to risk him but he’ll be OK. Normally, we’d put Ronan Murray in with Jamie out he has a bit of an ankle problem. We could have started him but we decided not to for this game.”

Benson did a lengthy ­running session before kick-off on his leg problem and Kenny is hoping he will resume full training by Wednesday ahead of the decider.

He added: “Hopefully he’ll be in training in midweek.

“We’ll have to look and see. We have a few imponderables at the moment, a few things we’re still uncertain about.”

But better news for the Lilywhites was that skipper Stephen O’Donnell came through 58 minutes without any issues.

Midfielder O’Donnell broke his leg in early May but has now declared himself fit for the Sunday showdown at the Aviva Stadium.

A comeback was delayed until Friday after he suffered a calf injury a fortnight ago and then aggravated it in a friendly game with Newry City last week.

Kenny said: “Stephen had a horrific leg break and a lot of people thought that he’d struggle to get back but he’s shown great spirit and ­fortitude to get back.

“It was a bit of an ask to put him in but he did well. We’ll assess it during the week.”

DFC | Stephen Kenny on Patrick Hoban: “He’s a very determined character with a very strong mentality. You’d want to be a brave man to tell him he’s not playing but sentiment wont come into it. If he’s not right, I won’t play him but I think he’ll be okay.”
