Garrycastle have a number of injury concerns ahead of their Westmeath senior football championship semi-final against defending champions St Loman’s.

The south Westmeath outfit are underdogs going into this clash against the four-in-a-row chasing Mullingar side and their cause has not been helped by injuries to key players.

A win over neighbours Athlone in the quarterfinal came at a price for Garrycastle as team captain Doron Harte picked up a hand injury, while John Gaffey and Ger Heneghan are recovering from broken finger and hamstring injuries respectively.

Joining them on the treatment table is Cathal Mannion who picked up a knee injury in training last week and is rated doubtful for Sunday’s game.

They will also be without the suspended Matthew Guiheen who received a straight red card in the win over Athlone, unless he successfully appeals that.

Sunday’s semi-final is part of a double header as St Loman’s v. Garrycastle (2.30pm) is followed by the meeting of Tyrrellspass and Mullingar Shamrocks at 4pm.
