Carlow’s top scorer in the hurling last season, Marty Kavanagh, hopes to be back in action soon.
A devastating knee injury ruled out the St. Mullins hitman ahead of the Joe McDonagh Cup game versus Kildare last month, but speaking with on Scoreline.ie’s Clash Act podcast Kavanagh says he is confident he can see the back end of the club championship.
“I might need to get surgery, I don’t know that yet, he’s (Doctor) hoping that it would be six weeks with the knee brace and joining back together and healing itself, he’s positive that it will happen,” said Marty.
“Then after that I’m not sure, regards rehab, there’s probably a month or maybe more because obviously the knee is weak now and there’s a fear there now that if I don’t strengthen it up that the ACL could go”.
“I’ve to take all that into consideration too, if the ACL goes then next year is gone”.
“I’ve a few things to see and see how rehab goes, I’m hopeful that I might see some club hurling action”.
