Shore and Kenny to miss Waterford clash


Wexford pair Andrew Shore and Andrew Kenny will miss Sunday's All-Ireland SHC quarter-final against Waterford at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

Davidstown-Courtnacuddy centre-back Shore, who missed most of last year with a cruciate knee ligament injury, is suffering from a shoulder a problem while forward Kenny is still struggling with a niggling hamstring injury.

"Both missed out on the Leinster final, Shore with a shoulder injury, and Kenny with a hamstring injury. This game is too soon for both," Wexford manager Fitzgerald told the Wexford People.

However, Oylegate-Glenbrien youngster Damien Reck and Davidstown-Courtnacuddy's David Dunne are both available for the Model County.

Fitzgerald is expecting a battle of the defences in Sunday's quarter-final against the Deise.

Fitzgerald has employed a sweeper during Wexford's championship campaign this season, while his opposite number Derek McGrath is also a fan of a packed defence.

"This will be a very tactical game, of that there is no doubt. Both sides play a similar type game, but Waterford have been playing this system for three years, while this is a first season for Wexford," Fitzgerald said.

"Waterford tried to play 15 on 15 against Cork [in the Munster SHC semi-final,which Cork won 0-23 to 1-15], but failed. They had to revert back to their more familiar style to gain success, so I expect no change in their style for this game.

"Wexford have been playing a similar style for six months but have become more accustomed so it should not pose a problem for us."
