Dubs line up two challenges

24 February 2009

Pat Gilroy has organised two challenge matches against quality opposition this week as Dublin continue preparations for the Division One clash with Donegal.

The Sky Blues have yet to get off the mark in this year’s league - losing to both Tyrone and Galway - and Gilroy obviously feels that matches offer the best form of preparation for the remaining league games.

Thus, the Dubs are taking on Monaghan on Tuesday night and Laois on Thursday night. This should help get the players ready for the Donegal game on Sunday week.

Beernard Brogan, Paul Flynn and Conal Keaney are all ready to return, as are longer-term absentees Tomas Quinn, Alan Brogan and Eamonn Fennell.
