“We were properly stretched and down to the bare bones.

“But now (Kevin) Ellison and (Ryan) Edwards are back from suspension and Parrish played in the reserves on Tuesday and came through okay.

“Beeley is making good progress but whether he’ll be okay for this weekend I don’t know. He’s 50-50 but if he isn’t fit for Saturday he’ll certainly be right for next weekend.

“Even the likes of Jack Kelleher are out of the treatment room and he’s been out for about four weeks.

“There’s only Peter Murphy (knee) and Tony Thompson with his dislocated finger. Apart from that we’re okay.”
