LAOIS HURLING MANAGER Teddy McCarthy has named an unchanged starting XV to face Dublin despite a number of injury concerns in the panel.

Goalkeeper Eoin Reilly took a limited part in last night’s training session as he continues his recovery from a hamstring tear, but the Abbeyleix man is named between the sticks for Saturday’s Leinster SHC quarter-final.

Full-back Darren Maher (hamstring) and full-forward Neil Foyle (finger) look to have shrugged off fitness doubts and are set to start in Tullamore.

But goalkeeper-turned-defender Patrick Mullaney and half-forward Sean Bourke both face spells on the sidelines to undergo operations on hand injuries.

“It actually happened me against Antrim back in March and like a fool I stayed playing on it and it was causing me a bit of trouble,” Mullaney told MidlandsSport yesterday.

“Hopefully I’ll get sorted now and rest it then for a couple of weeks.”

Laois (SHC v Dublin): Eoin Reilly; Canice Coonan, Darren Maher, Gearoid Burke; Conor Dunne, Matthew Whelan, Mick McEvoy; James Walsh, Shane Hanlon; Stephen Maher, Brian Dunne, Willie Hyland; Tommy Fitzgerald, Neil Foyle, David O’Mahoney.
