Late tests for Burke and Rock

DEAN ROCK and James Burke will undergo late fitness tests as holders Ballymun Kickhams sweat on their availability for tomorrow night's Dublin SFC final replay against St Vincent's, writes Frank Roche.

Dublin's impact sub specialist Rock twisted his knee while Mayo wing-back panellist Burke damaged his hamstring during Sunday's thrilling Donnycarney deadlock.

"It's touch and go for the two of them," manager Paul Curran says.

"They will do their recovery and get their treatment again today. James is probably more doubtful than Rocky at this stage, but he won't know until he gets running on it and he hasn't done that yet."

Kevin Leahy is set to play with a strapped ankle while Curran is equally confident about Karl Connolly's fitness after suffering cramp on Sunday.
