Thats worrying. At times I preferred Sava last season because I felt he was much more composed in his movement but in recent games he seems to be just as (if not more) accident prone than Gary. Hopefully he can keep the head and put in some solid performances.

Two big losses for the opening match, obviously Sava will come in now, but we'll need to get the selection bang on for MF now. I think Shields will be nailed on to hold on to his spot, essential he plays to protect the back 4 esp with O'Donnell out.

Friday night's game against the langers will probably be a good indication of the starting line up for the first real match.

Maybe both are being held back for the Rovers match? But to be fair I haven't seen them feature in pre season yet, you could be right.

Held back? Do you think it might be an intentional tactic to not play either of them in any preseason match for reasons other than fitness?

With the young lads on loan, it seems we will be starting the season with Kilduff and McGrath as the options up front. Hopefully McMillan is due back from injury but he will be off the pace and playing catch up on match fitness, maybe not unlike Kilduff previously. Kilduff is being talked up as fitter and sharper than ever before so we will see how he performs now with a bit of a run in the team.

I meant not being risked for pre season in an attempt to give them time to recover from injury. However this will obviously put them back further for fitness. Who knows they could well be ready for the big kick off.

If it is Kilduff who starts v Rovers, I will have absolutely no worries on that front, he is more than capable.

Correct about what Gavin tweeted about David McMillan, Chris Shields and Gary Rogers, but this is his tweet about Stephen O'Donnell:

Kenny also expects Stephen O'Donnell to be available for the game against Shamrock Rovs on Feb 24. Said there's an amnesty for 5-8 yellows.

Jamie McGrath will miss Longford and the President's Cup on Friday night with shin splints. Michael Duffy should be okay for Cork game
