Brendan Rogers is confident of being fit for Slaughtneil's two All-Ireland club semi-finals in February after fracturing his knuckle during yesterday's Ulster club SFC final.

The dual star expects the injury to his right hand to keep him sidelined for no more than three weeks. 

"I'll only need to rest for three weeks or so," Rogers told the BBC.

"It's happened in the first half when there was a sort of a goalmouth scramble and I just fell on it."

The full back played through the pain barrier as the Emmet's comfortably saw off Cavan Gaels to complete an unprecedented 'double treble' of Ulster senior football, hurling and camogie titles.

"It didn't really affect me for the rest of the game. Maybe it's only now that I've stopped that you notice these things. It's not too bad," he added.
