Foot injury sidelines Fermanagh's Quigley

Division 3 leaders Fermanagh have suffered a setback with the news that top scorer Sean Quigley is set to miss the rest of their Allianz Football League campaign.

Quigley has been in impressive scoring form for the Ernesiders, lining out at full forward and corner forward and scoring 0-7 in each of their recent wins over Wicklow and Roscommon.

However, it has been revealed that he broke a bone in his foot while playing for the Fermanagh Under-21s in a challenge match against Augher last Sunday morning.

The Roslea attacker will miss this weekend's Ulster derby against Monaghan, and the injury is expected to keep him out of action for up to two months.

Kieran Donnelly, the Fermanagh team trainer, told the Belfast Telegraph: "We have to follow it up today. He is a massive loss, he was coming into great form and has been our main scoring threat and playing extremely well.

"He's a young lad and he has been our top scorer to date, the focal point of our forward line. The leg is in a cast at the moment, so we are looking at six to eight weeks before he is back."

Fermanagh manager Peter Canavan will also have to cope without another Roslea clubman, James Sherry. The midfielder and former captain is facing a number of weeks out after suffering a broken hand.

However, Niall Bogue, Marty McGrath and Anthony McGuinness returned to the side for last Saturday's draw with Antrim and Barry Owens and Daniel Kille are both coming back into contention.
