Dublin hurling boss Anthony Daly has received a double boost in the form of Tomás Brady and Simon Lambert being declared fit to play in Saturday’s Leinster Senior Hurling Championship semi-final against Galway.
Team selector Vincent Teehan is confident that both players will have recovered in time for the match, but he is doubtful that Joey Boland will also be able to make a return in time.
Brady has been suffering from medial knee ligament damage he picked up in last month’s league final win against Kilkenny, while Lambert picked up a shoulder injury following a collision with Offaly midfielder Derek Molloy at the end of last month.
“Both Tomás and Simon had been taking part in training drills in the recent sessions we had,” said Teehan.
“And at our session on Saturday they stepped up things by playing for about 15 minutes in a practice match we had among ourselves.
“They were both a bit sore afterwards, but based on the way things went on Saturday, I’d say they have a good chance of featuring against Galway.”
Boland sustained a dislocated shoulder in the second half of Dublin’s league final win over Kilkenny last month, and looks highly unlikely to be fit in time for Saturday.
