Sherlock to lead Dublin attack

1995 All-Ireland-winning hero Jason Sherlock has recovered from a hamstring injury to be named in the Dublin team for Sunday's Leinster SFC quarter-final clash with Louth (Croke Park, throw-in 4pm).

Sherlock injured himself during the NFL Division 2 final defeat to Westmeath last time out, but is fit enough to lead the Dubs' attack again from centre-forward.

Dublin manager Paul Caffrey has included two championship debutants for the Louth tie.

Consistent form in the league has helped Eamonn Fennell nail down a midfield spot beside Shane Ryan.

While the other championship newcomer in the line-up is left half-forward Paddy Andrews.

The reigning Leinster champions are without four players - Ciaran Whelan, Paul Flynn, Diarmuid Connolly and Bernard Brogan - due to the eight-week suspensions they earned arising from the controversial league match with Meath.

DUBLIN (SFC v Louth) - S Cluxton; D Henry, R McConnell, S O'Shaughnessy; P Casey, B Cullen, B Cahill; E Fennell, S Ryan; C Moran, J Sherlock, P Andrews; A Brogan (capt), C Keaney, T Quinn.
