Captain Murphy returns for Wexford

 

GAA:  Wexford captain David Murphy will start the Leinster football semi-final against Dublin in Croke Park on Sunday, after two games on the sidelines recovering from a leg infection.

The centre-back was hospitalised for a period but will lineout out at Headquarters this weekend, his inclusion shifting Brian Malone to corner-back and Niall Murphy to the bench.

Ciarán Lyng will also start the game having overcome the groin injury that afforded PJ Banville an opportunity in the 1-13 to 0-15 quarter-final replay win over Longford, while Paddy Byrne gets in to the half-forward line ahead of Conor Carty.

Aindreas Doyle’s return to fitness after a hamstring injury, however, has not been enough to shift Lee Chin out of the half-back line.

Wexford (SF v Dublin): A Masterson; R Tierney, G Molloy, B Malone; A Flynn, D Murphy, L Chin; D Waters, R Quinlivan; P Byrne, S Roche, B Brosnan, C Lyng, E Bradley, R Barry.

DUBLIN (SFC v Wexford): S Cluxton; P McMahon, R O’Carroll, M Fitzsimons; J McCarthy, G Brennan, K Nolan; E Fennell, D Bastick; B Cullen (capt), A Brogan, P Flynn; D Connolly, K McManamon, B Brogan.
