Team Manager Shaun Payne however refused to be drawn on whether or not either would be included in the match day squad. "At this stage both are included in the extended squad," Payne said in UL today, " we'll wait and see how things go in training tomorrow. But it has to be remembered that in match terms these two are four games behind the other players in the squad.
Payne confirmed that Paul Warwick is suffering from a foot ligament injury that will keep him sidelined for the next two to three weeks while Ian Dowling continues to be troubled by a knee injury with no definite date being given for the Kilkennyman's return.
