Shane O’Donnell is in a race against time to be fit for Sunday’s Allianz National Hurling League clash with Tipperary.
The Eire Óg man is suffering from a knee injury, and management say they’ll make a decision on his fitness later in the week.
Meanwhile, a former Clare hurling captain feels this weekends National League clash with Tipperary will test where the squad are in their development.
The Semple Stadium showdown pits the current league champions against the reigning All Ireland champions, with the Banner edging the battle when they met in the quarter finals last year.
Clare opened their campaign with a loss to Cork before an impressive win over Kilkenny, and Feakle’s Tommy Guilfoyle feels they showed huge improvement in that victory.
