Wexford's Wallace on the mend

Wexford full-back Philip Wallace is winning his battle to be fit for his side's Leinster SFC quarter-final against Meath on Sunday week.

Wexford full-back Philip Wallace is winning his battle to be fit for his side's Leinster SFC quarter-final against Meath on Sunday week.

The Gusserane clubman broke his hand in Wexford's final National League game against Armagh on April 9, and underwent surgery - having two pins inserted - a few days later.

A teacher by profession, the 27-year-old Wallace's recovery has been a quick one and he resumed training this week, boosting Wexford boss Paul Bealin ahead of his first championship match in charge.

Forward duo Ciaran Deely and John Hudson, who injured his right shoulder in a recent challenge match against Roscommon, are also back in training.

However, former Good Counsel star Eric Bradley will miss out on his championship debut for Wexford against Meath. The talented midfielder has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

Other injury concerns for Bealin are midfielder Thomas Howlin, who is also nursing a hamstring injury, wing forward Kieran Kennedy has a groin strain and reserve goalkeeper Anthony Masterson (ankle).
