Fermanagh must step up to mark without McGrath

Time is fast running out on Fermanagh as they step up their fight to avoid relegation from Division Two.

In addition manager Malachy O'Rourke must plan without inspirational midfielder Marty McGrath for Sunday's head to head with Kildare in Brewster Park.

McGrath finds himself out of bounds after picking up yellow cards in successive matches against Armagh and Laois.

With just two points from five games, the Erne men lie second from bottom with only pointless Wexford beneath them.

The fact they conceded a goal and 23 poiints last time out against Laois has to be a major concer for manager O'Rourke who knows that nothing less than victory will suffice against Kildare if they are to retain their Division Two status.

Cork remain favourites to top the division though they still have difficult games against both Monaghan and Armagh.
