Injury rules Donegal star Eoghan Ban Gallagher out of Kerry clash
Donegal have been dealt a heavy blow ahead of their big Super 8s clash with Kerry, after one of their top stars has been ruled out with a serious injury.
Killybegs and Tir Conaill star Eoghan Ban Gallagher picked up a serious leg injury at training on Wednesday night.
The full extent of his injury is not known, but it is expected that he could be out for a considerable period.
The 23-year-old Gallagher has become one of Donegal’s key players with his trademark surging runs from defence.
And his speed would be vital to track a most pacey Kerry forward line.
In a game of fine margins, his enforced absence could tilt the balance slightly towards the Kingdom.
His power and raw pace are a key part of Donegal’s game and he was considered to be unlucky not to get an All-Star last year.
