Five days out from the Leinster football final and Dublin manager Jim Gavin has said that it will be Stephen Cluxton's "call" as to whether the player will line out against Laois in the Croke Park decider. 

Cluxton sustained a back injury in the semi-final win over Longford and have to leave the field after a high challenge from James McGivney - an incident that saw the latter sent off. 

At a Dublin media day ahead of the provincial final, RTÉ Sport's Brian Carthy asked Jim Gavin about the chances of a quick return to a action for his number one goalkeeper.

"It's a possibility" was Gavin's reply.

"He had a hard fall in the last game but thankfully he's on the road to recovery. He's in great spirits and a call will be made later in the week.

"We've a taken a step back and let the medical team work with Stephen. Ultimately we've left the last call to the player and we'll see how he is later in the week."

Gavin did confirm that Cluxton, who has not missed a championship match since 2004, has trained with the squad in the last week.
