A host of Wexford players could return to the fold ahead of the upcoming Wexford and Kilkenny Allianz League Clash..
The Wexford Senior hurlers have been without joint-captains Lee Chin and Matthew O’Hanlon for their opening two clashes of this Allianz Hurling League campaign.
They’ve also been missing last year’s All-Star Dee O’Keeffe, who has just returned from a spell of travelling abroad.
Shelmaliers hurler and corner-back Simon Donohoe was also missing last weekend in the Yellowbellies’ loss to Clare after he was sidelined against Laois.
Speaking to the Irish Mirror, Fitzgerald revealed that a host of Wexford players could return and see action against Kilkenny in the next round of the League.
“There’s a few good guys to come back so we’ll see what happens over the next few weeks,” commented Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald.
“I don’t think he’ll be ready for a fortnight’s time,” he said of O’Keeffe. “I don’t think he’ll have enough work done. He might make the bench.
“Hopefully, Chinner will make the bench, Matt will make the bench, David Dunne will make the bench, Simon Donohoe – there’ll be ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ about it. Aidan Nolan might be in better shape than he was.”
One would expect that Kilkenny will come to Wexford Park with a burning desire in an attempt to lay down a marker for the year, especially after last year’s Leinster final loss.
