The Wexford team to face Westmeath in this evening's All-Ireland SHC preliminary quarter-final shows two changes from that which was pipped by Kilkenny for a place in the Leinster SHC final last month.

Simon Donohue replaces Conor Firman at left corner back, while Jack O'Connor comes into the attack in place of his brother Rory. Firman and Rory O'Connor played in Wednesday night's energy-sapping Leinster U21HC final which Wexford lost to Galway after extra-time, as did Damien Reck, who starts at right corner back.

Wexford (SH v Westmeath): Mark Fanning; Damien Reck, Liam Ryan, Simon Donohue; Paudie Foley, Matthew O'Hanlon, Diarmuid O'Keeffe; Kevin Foley, Shaun Murphy; Lee Chin, Aidan Nolan, Jack O'Connor; Paul Morris, David Dunne, Conor McDonald.
