KILKENNY star Henry Shefflin is confident he can return to championship action next month after making his return from a shoulder injury in a club last weekend.
“In another three weeks I’ll probably have a better idea of where I am,” said Shefflin as he steps up his recovery.
“If I can just get a clean run so I don’t get any setbacks or stopping because you don’t want to go for a week and have to stop then for another week and go again.
“It’s just not the way it is but I have to get that run. I haven’t had that run up until now so it’s just to keep that run going and get that hit, get those high intensity training matches.”
