Fives 'doubtful' to make replay

Waterford defender Shane Fives is rated as "very doubtful" for Sunday's Division 1 NHL final replay with Clare - but Austin Gleeson will be fit to play.
Fives damaged his ankle in the drawn match last Sunday and may not be risked as Waterford aim to retain their League crown at the second time of asking.
Gleeson was also forced off with cramp but will be fully recovered in time for the Semple Stadium rematch.
Maurice Shanahan could also earn a start after his cameo role last Sunday, which culminated in that stunning 92nd-minute free to ensure a replay.
When asked if Tourin clubman Fives would be ruled out for the weekend, Derek McGrath replied that he was "very doubtful".
