DONEGAL WILL GIVE Eamonn McGee and Karl Lacey every chance to prove their fitness to face Mayo.

McGee limped out of Saturday’s qualifier win against Galway with an ankle injury, while 2012 Footballer of the Year Lacey was absent with a knee injury.

Manager Rory Gallagher was hopeful that McGee will be ready for the quarter-finals despite the seven-day turnaround.

“Eamonn McGee rolled his ankle in the first half,” he said after the 3-12 to 0-11 win.

“He did the same thing in the Armagh game, you know, (and) he was back within five or six days.

It doesn’t appear to be too bad so we just have to wait and see, monitor it.

Lacey’s recovery will be “touch and go,” Gallagher added.

“We just have to wait and see. He is making good progress definitely. We’ll see next week.

“Obviously we would be very keen to get him back.”
