Wexford side named for Roscommon replay

Adrian Morrissey and Eric Bradley have been pencilled in to start for Wexford in Saturday's All-Ireland SFC second round qualifier replay against Roscommon at Dr. Hyde Park (throw-in 3pm).

Adrian Morrissey and Eric Bradley have been pencilled in to start for Wexford in Saturday's All-Ireland SFC second round qualifier replay against Roscommon at Dr. Hyde Park (throw-in 3pm).

Kilmacud Crokes clubman Morrissey is a shock inclusion, given that he only recently underwent surgery to correct a groin problem.

Wexford manager Jason Ryan obviously feels he stands a chance of playing and if he does prove his fitness, Morrissey will replace Kieran Kennedy in defence.

Bradley, an influential substitute and scorer in the drawn game, has been drafted in at midfield in place of Brendan Doyle. All-Star forward Mattie Forde remains on the injury list with a back problem.

Otherwise the team remains unchanged from that which started the 90-minute battle in atrocious conditions at Wexford Park last Saturday.

The winners of the replay will take on Meath in the third round of the qualifiers.

WEXFORD (SFC v Roscommon) - A Masterson; B Malone, G Molloy, N Murphy; A Morrissey, D Murphy, C Morris (capt); D Fogarty, E Bradley; S Roche, R Barry, A Flynn; C Lyng, S Cullen, PJ Banville.
