Fermanagh's preparations for their Ulster SFC quarter-final against Cavan on 16 June are being hindered by an injury crisis in the squad.

Eoin Donnelly (broken leg) and Barry Mulrone (knee) have already been ruled out of the Brewster Park clash.

However, others struggling for fitness include Ryan McCluskey, Niall Bogue, Daryl Keenan, Tommy McElroy, Johnny Irvine and Daniel Kille.

In all, eleven players are currently unavailable for the Ernemen.

McCluskey, Bogue and Irvine all have hamstring injuries with Keenan currently out because of a back problem and McElroy and Kille bothered by knee and hip ailments respectively.

Fermanagh's injury woes will only increase Cavan's probable favouritism for the 16 June clash.

The Breffnimen progressed to the Ulster quarter-final with a surprise but fully-deserved victory over Armagh in the preliminary round.
