Stephen Nolan will line out at midfield in the Wexford team on Sunday as the Model men clash with Clare in NHL Division 1A (Cusack Park, throw-in 2.30pm).

The big Faythe Harriers clubman returns to the side after missing last week's Walsh Cup final against Kilkenny due to his involvement in the Fitzgibbon Cup with UCD.

Wexford manager John Meyler has made two personnel changes to the side that lost 1-13 to 0-10 to Kilkenny.

Nolan will partner Rory McCarthy in centre-field, while Stephen Banville of the Shelmaliers, who had an impressive cameo as a substitute in the Walsh Cup decider, also gets the nod at wing forward.

The positional switches see Eoin Quigley move to centre forward and Richie Kehoe slotted in at full-forward. McCarthy resumes at midfield with Rory Jacob listed at left corner forward.

Pat Doran and Mitch Jordan are the players to lose out in the reshuffle.

Full-back David 'Doc' O'Connor will be making his first league appearance after recently returning from a three-month travelling stint.

WEXFORD (NHL v Clare) - D Fitzhenry; M Travers, D O'Connor, P Roche; C Lawler, K Rossiter, C Kenny; S Nolan, R McCarthy; M Jacob, E Quigley, S Banville; P Carley, R Kehoe, R Jacob.
