Wicklow football manager Hugh Kenny has been forced to make one change to his side ahead of Sunday's All-Ireland qualifier against Donegal in Aughrim.

Bray Emmets defender Dara Ó hAnnaidh has failed a late fitness test and loses out at centre half-back, with his place taken by Wesley Callaghan, the scorer of a point in the Wicklow junior footballers' three-point loss to Meath last week.

Ó hAnnaidh - who pulled up in training last week with a quad injury - will be a loss to the Kenny, having impressed in the narrow Leinster loss to Kildare.

Lynchpin wing back Brendan Ó hAnnaidh, older brother of Dara, picked up a knee injury against the Lilywhites but is fit to play.

Wicklow officials are expecting an attendance of between 5,000-6,000 on Sunday for the first ever championship meeting between the sides.

WICKLOW (SFC v Donegal): R Hollingsworth; C Hyland, B Daly, T Burke; K Manning, W Callaghan, B Ó hAnnaidh; D Dillon, J Stafford; D Smullen, L Glynn, T Harney; P Earls, W O'Gorman, A Ellis.
