Donegal forward Mark McHugh will miss the start of this season's Allianz National League, but hasn’t ruled out playing some part in the campaign as he continues his recovery from a pelvis injury

The 2012 All-Star hasn’t played since the victorious All-Ireland final against Mayo in September.

The Kilcar man said: “I am not 100% sure yet, but I am giving myself every chance. I have to just listen to what my doctors and physios say.”

The All-Ireland champions start their league campaign with a trip to Croke Park to face Kildare on 2 February.
