Boss: Injuries give others a chance

Skipper Rowlands has been ruled out for the season with a cruciate injury and Mahon, who has worn the armband in his midfield partner's absence, is now out for four months with a shoulder problem.

But Magilton is conscious not to highlight the injuries to his key players as he feels he has players ready to take their chances.

"As much as they are two of our most influential players it can be a bit derogatory to other players who are desperately keen to play," he said.

"While we are sad at losing two key players I think it's important for the balance and harmony of the squad that everybody believes they have an opportunity to play and that has borne fruit in our recent performances."
