Broken nose leaves Ó Sé doubtful

March 10, 2016

Kerry's Marc O'Se picks up an injury against Donegal in Austin Stack Park.

Kerry manager Éamonn Fitzmaurice may have to make do without Marc Ó Sé for Sunday's trip to Castlebar as the veteran defender recovers from a nose injury.

Ó Sé sustained a broken nose during the opening stages of Kerry's fiery league clash with Donegal last Sunday in Tralee, where he went on to play the entire 70 minutes as the Kingdom recorded a five-point win over the visitors.

Speaking on Radio Kerry, Ó Sé claimed that he had been "blindsided" when he shipped a blow to the face and the injury now leaves him doubtful for Sunday's showdown with Mayo at McHale Park (throw-in 2.30pm).

Fitzmaurice will definitely be without the services of Alan Fitzgerald this weekend after the full-forward was red-carded for lashing out at Donegal opponent Neil McGee, who is also understood to have suffered a broken nose in the game.

Both counties have since been fined €7,500 arising from incidents during the game, while McGee was given a one-match ban after the CCCC cited him in an incident with Fitzgerald.
