Daniel Goulding is the latest player to be sidelined as the injury worries continue for Cork ahead of next Sunday’s All Ireland quarter-final tie against Mayo at Croke Park.
On Monday the Cork County Board confirmed that Goulding had damaged ankle ligaments against Down last weekend and would definitely miss the engagement against the men from the west. The statement went on to say that should the rebels progress to a semi-final, the player would still be a major doubt.
Colm O’Neill and Ciaran Sheehan are already out for the season with cruciate ligament injuries, while Goulding’s most likely replacement Barry O’Driscoll has a double fracture of his jaw and will also be absent. Eoin Cadogan injured his rib against the Mourne men and is touch and go for the Mayo match as well.
