KELLY'S EYE ON LIMS OPENER.
Byline: PAUL KEANE
NEW Sligo manager Niall Carew says star attacker David Kelly should be fit for Sunday week's Allianz League opener.
Carew, right, will make his League debut as Yeats County boss when they travel south to face Limerick in Division 3. The availability of star talent Kelly following hernia surgery would be a welcome boost and Carew is confident. Carew said: "David had the hernia operation before Christmas and surgery like that can lead to other problems but it's a case of so far, so good. He should be back for the Limerick game.
"He just needs to get a run of training and games now, keep free from injury and get the bit of pace that he always had back into him."
But Sligo will definitely be without Adrian McIntyre who has retired. The Tourlestrane club man lined out at midfield in July's Round 4 qualifier defeat to Cork.
A hamstring injury looks set to side line Stephen Coen for the trip to Limerick also while Brendan Egan is on club duty with St Vincent's in Dublin.
Carew is keen on a promotion push and said he's optimistic their talented forward unit can deliver.
The former Waterford boss said: "I would class Adrian Marren as one of the best forwards in the country, David Kelly likewise and Mark Breheny is still there.
"That's a lot of good forwards and hopefully Brian Curran will be back for the Limerick game too."
RETURN David Kelly is fit to face Limerick next Sunday
