Laois manager John Sugrue has confirmed that captain Stephen Attride is on the road to recovery but insists the county won't rush the Killeshin man back into action.

Attride is due back in the Mater Hospital for a check-up today after the accidental clash with a Carlow player that saw him suffer a fractured skull. And Sugrue revealed that while the injuries are serious, he should make a full recovery given time.

"Stephen's sore," Sugrue said at the Laois media night ahead of their Leinster final clash with Dublin on Sunday week. "He's sore and tired, has headaches but he is good. He is home and is resting. And in the grand sense he avoided significant damage to a great degree.

"He's got two fractures in his skull but nothing inside of (the skull). He has very serious soft tissue (damage) outside of that. But once it doesn't go inside (the skull) I think everyone is happier.

"It's not your average sporting injury, for sure. The concussion and fractures in the skull will take time to settle down, but both should hopefully work out once he's given the time."

Sugrue added: "Stephen is a proper footballer. He doesn't baulk from hard work or tough stuff and he can play a bit of ball as well. So he's definitely a loss, but that's sport.

"There's no point taking risks with this fella. Laois will need him in the future so there's no point in gambling short term to lose him long term."

Daniel O'Reilly, who suffered serious head injuries when he attacked in Carlow town in the wake of their Division 4 final win over the Barrowsiders, has rejoined the panel, but he can't partake in any contact sessions for another six months.
