“We’ll give him as much time as possible to be right for the game.

“It’ll be touch-and-go whether he’s going to be available.

“We’ll give him as much time as he needs because he’s a big player.”

Otherwise, McCann has a full squad from which to select his team for Sunday’s first leg with long-term absentees Ian Lawlor and Joe Wright both back in full training – though both are unlikely to be risked.

McCann said: “Everyone seems good and it’s nice to have a fully fit squad because we haven’t had that for periods of the season.

“Everyone is good and we just hope that one concern comes through as well.”
