Cobh Ramblers midfielder Craig Donnellan has been ruled out for 'a few weeks' after dislocating his knee during Saturday's 3-0 FAI Cup defeat to Limerick.

 

The former Cork City midfielder was stretchered from the field in the 73rd minute of the tie at St Colman's Park in Cobh and many fans feared the worst in the immediate aftermath.

 

 

21-year-old Donnellan was taken to Cork University Hospital for treatment and confirmed this evening that he'd dislocated his knee and was likely to return to action 'in a few weeks.'

 

Donnellan tweeted: "Thanks everyone for the best wishes, dislocated my knee but thankfully it popped back in. I'll be back in a few weeks."

 

Cobh were well-beaten on the night by their Munster rivals, who advanced to the second round thanks to a goal from Chiedozie Ogbene and a brace from Garbhan Coughlan.
