Conor Mortimer has revealed his disappointment at missing DCU's O'Byrne Cup encounter with Kildare on Sunday, but expects to be fit for Mayo's NFL opener against Derry in a fortnight's time. Mortimer sustained a broken nose in the victory over DIT last weekend and a scheduled operation was postponed during the week. He will certainly miss the semi-final encounter with the Lilywhites but hopes to be back at full tilt in time for Mayo's NFL opener against Derry on February 1st. He said: "I went to the surgeon on Thursday hoping to have the job done but I was advised to come back as the swelling needs to go down more. That was a disappointment. "There's nothing I can do but I'm confident I'll be fit for the start of the League and also for the Sigerson Cup clash with Sligo IT."
