Roscommon have up to six players on the treatment table ahead of their Connacht SFC semi-final against Leitrim on Saturday, May 26th.

Time is against the sextet proving their fitness for the clash at Pairc Sean MacDiarmada in just over a week's time.

Roscommon manager Kevin McStay and his selectors are sweating over the fitness of Ultan Harney, Cathal Compton, Niall Daly, Fergal Lennon, Niall McInerney and John McManus.

Leitrim will be buoyed by the news that the Rossies could be missing so many players and given the nature of the injuries, it is probably wise to consider that all six could miss out.

Harney is believed to be definitely out with a hamstring injury, while McInerney and McManus are suffering with the same problem.

Compton has ankle ligament issues and is rated extremely doubtful as is Daly who has a foot injury, while Lennon is suffering from back spasms at the moment.

It was revealed earlier this week that Ciaran Lennon has been ruled out for 'at least eight weeks' with a broken thumb.

Meanwhile, Leitrim only have the one injury concern as Dean McGovern is recovering from an injury sustained in a club match.
