GAA: FIT FOR A KING; Stephen: Cavan Will Win despite Injuries


Byline: Orla BANNON

STEPHEN KING is backing Cavan to overcome their injury worries and beat Antrim by four or five points on Sunday.

"Add in the fact that they've lost four or five first choice players and that's another massive blow.

"They're right to keep their heads down and sure if they get over Sunday then they can talk all they want.
