Donegal's McHugh set to miss start of league

Mark McHugh's last appearance came in the All-Ireland decider against Mayo last September

Donegal forward Mark McHugh will miss the start of this season's Allianz National League, but hasn’t ruled out playing some part in the campaign as he continues his recovery from a pelvis injury

The 2012 All-Star hasn’t played since the victorious All-Ireland final against Mayo in September.

The Kilcar man said: “I am not 100% sure yet, but I am giving myself every chance. I have to just listen to what my doctors and physios say.”

The All-Ireland champions start their league campaign with a trip to Croke Park to face Kildare on 2 February.
