Injuries force Fenlon to tinker

INJURIES will force Pat Fenlon to make changes to his Bohs side for tomorrow's league clash with Drogheda United.

But the Bohs boss has every faith in his players to fill the voids when needed.

"We picked up a few injuries in the win over UCD on Tuesday, Stephen Gray and Brian Shelley took a knock, so we'll see how they are for the Drogheda game, but we have lads who can come in," said Fenlon.

"For the UCD game on Tuesday, picking the bench was as hard as picking the team. Lads like Mark Rossiter, Aaron Greene and Ken Oman weren't even on the bench and that was probably hard for them. Young Aaron did well against Glentoran last week and Mark has been training well, that was a difficult decision to make."

IRISH midfielder Chris McCann hopes to prove his fitness in a reserve game for Burnley tonight so he can rejoin their relegation battle.

The Dubliner has played just two games in the past six months due to a recurring knee injury and McCann, who has played almost 150 league games for the Clarets since making his debut as an 18- year-old in 2005, has been badly missed.

But McCann, 22, is praying he can come through tonight's reserve clash with Manchester United and rejoin the squad for Saturday's relegation battle with Wigan Athletic.
