Hughes misses Clare clash

Down's All-star attacker Danny Hughes has been ruled out of Saturday's All-Ireland SFC Qualifier clash with Clare in Ennis.
Hughes suffered an injury in training, and will play no part in the tie at Cusack Park as last year's beaten All-Ireland finalists bid to resurrect their title challenge following a first round Ulster Championship defeat to Armagh.
It's the latest setback for manager Paddy O'Rourke, who is already sweating on the fitness of Benny Coulter and Conor Maginn, who are both struggling with hamstring injuries.
