David "Doc" O'Connor, Adrian Fenlon and Michael "Mitch" Jordan have all passed fitness tests tonight to be included in Wexford's starting line-up for their All-Ireland SHC quarter-final tie with Clare.

The Model men are unchanged for Sunday's clash with Anthony Daly's Banner side.

Fenlon's damaged ankle ligaments were causing the most concern for Wexford boss Seamus Murphy, but the 1996 All-Ireland hero looks to ready for the Croke Park fray.

Murphy has opted for some positional changes - Paul Carley moves from right half-forward to left, Dessie Mythen, who bagged 1-1 in the Leinster final against Kilkenny, steps up to the full-forward line and team skipper Michael Jacob files back to wing forward.

The Wexford defensive lines and midfield combination of Fenlon and Rory McCarthy remain intact.

WEXFORD (SHC v Clare): D Fitzhenry; D O'Connor, D Ryan, K Rossiter; M Travers, D Ruth, D Lyng; A Fenlon, R McCarthy; M Jacob (capt), E Quigley, P Carley; D Mythen, M Jordan, R Jacob.
