Patrickswell goalkeeper Brian Murray has regained a starting spot in the Limerick side for tomorrow's Allianz NHL Division 1B tussle with Antrim (Casement Park, throw-in 2pm).

Murray, who made his senior debut against Tipperary last month, replaces Timmy Houlihan, who started in the 1-14 to 0-13 win over Laois last weekend.

The one other change sees Garryspillane's Donie Ryan, who grabbed a crucial 57th-minute goal against Laois, start in a new role at midfield with half-back Mark Riordan losing out in the reshuffle.

Regular midfielder Donal O'Grady reverts to left half-back.

Joe McKenna's Shannonsiders sit second in the table behind champions Kilkenny. If they win or draw in Belfast, they will be guaranteed a spot in the quarter-finals. If Galway beat Kilkenny and Limerick get the better of Antrim, then McKenna's charges will go directly into the semi-finals.

LIMERICK (NHL v Antrim) - B Murray; D Reale, TJ Ryan, M Foley; O Moran, B Geary, D O'Grady; P O'Grady, D Ryan; M O'Brien, S Lucey, C Fitzgerald; A O'Shaughnessy, B Begley, M Keane.
