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 [O’Hanlon] 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.
