Dublin hurling boss Tommy Naughton has made two changes in personnel and three positional switches to his side as they attempt to salvage their All-Ireland quarter-final hopes.

Tonight sees the men from the capital travel to face Munster champions Waterford at Walsh Park (throw-in 7pm) with Maghnus Breathnach and Tomas McGrane coming into the XV at centre forward and right corner-forward respectively.

Emmett Carroll and Liam Ryan lose out.

Kevin Flynn has been named at left corner-forward but faces a fitness test to see if he has recovered from illness.

A vacancy has also been left at left half-back as Dublin give David Sweeney (hamstring) more time to prove his fitness.

Waterford are unchanged apart from one positional switch which sees Ken McGrath revert to centre-back.

Tonight's meeting will be only the second ever Waterford v Dublin SHC clash. The sides last met in the 1938 All-Ireland final, which Dublin won by 2-5 to 1-6 to clinch their sixth and last title.

DUBLIN (SHC v Waterford): G Maguire; G O’Meara, S Hiney, J Cullen; D O’Reilly, R Fallon, AN Other; D Russell, T Moore; S McDonnell, M Breathnach, D Curtin; T McGrane, M Carton, K Flynn.

WATERFORD: S Brenner; T Feeney, F Hartley, J Murray; T Browne, K McGrath, E Murphy; B Phelan, E Kelly; D Shanahan, M Walsh, P Flynn; J Mullane, S Prendergast, E McGrath.
