Donegal’s Michael Murphy 

Donegal captain Michael Murphy is in line to play against Down in this Sunday’s Ulster SFC preliminary round.

Manager Declan Bonner is hopeful the three-time All-Star will be able to lead the team in Newry as the county begins their campaign to reach a 10th final in 11 years.

The Glenswilly man came off with a hamstring complaint in last month’s Division 1 North draw with Monaghan in Ballybofey.

“Michael has been back over the last week so we’re hopeful that he’s going to be okay and ready to go. A couple more training sessions to go through and we’ll keep an eye on that. We’ll make our decision after those two sessions but at the moment he’s good to go.
