DONEGAL CAPTAIN Michael Murphy, along with club and county colleagues, is anxiously awaiting results of a scan on an injured knee.
Murphy had an MRI scan on the knee, injured during an All-County Legaue game between Glenswilly and St Michael’s on Saturday evening at Pairc Naomh Columba, today.

Murphy underwent the scan at the Affidea clinic in Letterkenny this morning.
Hopes are high that the injury is not as bad as had been initially feared, though club and county management and team-mates are still concerned.[adrotate group=”59″]
It could be tomorrow before the full extent of the damage is known.
Eight minutes from the end of the fixture on Saturday, Murphy fell awkwardly as he skidded on a greasy surface challenging for the ball.
Murphy had scored 1-4, but Glenswilly lost 2-12 to 2-8 and the sight of the talisman outstretched and in distress in the dugout after the game was certainly a worry for those present.[adrotate group=”38″]
“We’re a bit more hopeful than we were,” said Michael Canning, the Glenswilly manager.
“He’s got a bit of movement back into it since Saturday, but you can never be too sure until the results of the scan come back.”[adrotate group=”68″] Tags:
