Wexford have made three changes to their starting line-up for Saturday’s All-Ireland SHC qualifier against Clare in Cusack Park.

Oulart the Ballagh trio Eoin Moore, David Redmond and Garrett Sinnott have all been named in Liam Dunne’s starting line-up.

Moore starts at wing-back with Lee Chin moving to centre-back, while Redmond will partner Harry Kehoe in midfield.

The final change sees Sinnott selected at wing-forward, with Andrew Shore, Diarmuid O’Keefe and Jack Guiney all dropping to the bench.

ALL-IRELAND SHC QUALIFIERS

Clare v Wexford
Saturday, 3.30pm

Clare manager Davy Fitzgerald has made two changes to the side that were defeated by Cork in last month's Munster semi-final.

Patrick Kelly replaces Donal Tuohy in goal while Cathal McInerney is preferred to Peter Duggan at corner-forward. 

Colm Galvin and Cian Dillon were doubts after picking up knocks while playing for their clubs but they have both been passed fit to start.

Saturday’s contest in Ennis will be only the fifth championship meeting between the counties, with Clare having won all four previous clashes.

Their most recent meeting was last July when the Banner were 3-24 to 1-20 victors after extra-time in the third phase of the qualifiers.

Clare: P Kelly; C Dillon, D McInerney, J Browne; B Bugler, C Ryan, P O'Connor; C Galvin, P Donnellan; J Conlon, T Kelly, C Ryan; P Collins, C McGrath, C McInerney.

Wexford: M Fanning; L Ryan, M O'Hanlon, K Rossiter; E Moore, L Chin, C Kenny; D Redmond, H Kehoe; G Sinnott, P Doran, L McGovern; P Morris, C McDonald, R Jacob.
