Cavan manager Mickey Graham admits to feeling particularly nervous during the month of April.

As county players return to their clubs for a hectic schedule of matches, Graham is concerned to note that they are being singled out for special treatment by the opposition – not an ideal scenario with the Ulster SFC opener against Monaghan pencilled in for May 18th!

“It’s nervous times at the weekend, every game there’s somebody picking up something,” the Cavan Gaels clubman told The Irish News. “The county players then seem to be getting special attention, they would be targeted in games, especially key players.

“It doesn’t help the county. Any lads that pick up knocks at this stage are probably missing a week’s training or more, and you’re only five weeks out now. Every session the lads are missing has a knock-on effect for further down the line.

“I understand what’s going on, it’s just annoying that the lads are picking up so many knocks in a short space of time.”
