D-Day for Kernan

AARON Kernan will know within the next 24 hours if he will be available for Armagh's opening assignment in the All-Ireland football qualifiers.

The Crossmaglen Rangers stalwart had to be substituted at half-time against Tyrone last Sunday because of a hamstring injury.

"Aaron's hamstring is very tight and we will just have to wait and see what the scan reveals. We can ill-afford to lose him," said assistant manager Paul Grimley.
