Ryan O’Dwyer will lead the Dublin attack in Saturday night’s Leinster SHC quarter-final against Wexford in Wexford Park (7.0).
The Kilmacud Crokes forward missed most of this year’s National League after undergoing surgery on his shoulder but made some appearances off the bench towards the close of the competition but now starts against the Slaneysiders.
Dubiln’s team to face Liam Dunne’s Wexford shows three changes from the side that was beaten by Tipperary in the NHL Division 1 semi-final – Gary Maguire returns between the posts for Alan Nolan, Niall Corcoran replaces Ruairí Trainor at corner-back while O’Dwyer’s return sees Simon Lambert lose out.
There are also a few positional changes – most notably Conal Keaney’s siting at full-forward where he will be flanked by David O’Callaghan (pictured) and David Treacy.
Kevin Byrne wasn’t considered due to a broken finger and Seán McGrath is suffering from an ankle ligament injury.
DUBLIN (SHC v Wexford): Gary Maguire; Niall Corcoran, Peter Kelly, Paul Schutte; Michael Carton, Liam Rushe, Shane Durkin; John McCaffrey (capt), Joseph Boland; Conor McCormack, Ryan O’Dwyer, Danny Sutcliffe; David O’Callaghan, Conal Keaney, David Treacy.
