WEXFORD STAR LEE Chin faces a late fitness test to see if he can start as Davy Fitzgerald’s side face Clare in their All-Ireland SHC qualifier tomorrow.

The Faythe Harriers man is named to start at centre-half forward, though the results of a fitness test tomorrow morning will determine whether or not he will grace the turf of O’Moore Park, Portlaoise [throw-in 2pm].

Jack O’Connor is down to start alongside him in the half-forward line as one of three changes, while his St Martin’s team-mate Joe O’Connor and David Dunne of Davidstown Courtnacuddy also come into the starting side.

Darren Morrissey, Kevin Foley, Shaun Murphy all drop out of the team ahead of the Davy Fitz-Brian Lohan showdown.

The Clare team has not yet been released, though David McInerney will be an absentee after his red card appeal was rejected.
