Wexford manager Colm Bonnar has made just one change to his side for Saturday's All-Ireland SHC relegation play-off against Clare at O'Moore Park in Portlaoise (throw-in 5pm).

Stephen Banville returns to full-forward with Éanna Martin dropping to the bench, as Wexford look to bounce back from their qualifier loss to Limerick.

Otherwise, the task of avoiding a relegation final has been entrusted to the players who lined out against the Treaty men.

Saturday's game will be only the fourth Championship meeting between Wexford and Clare.

Clare have won all three previous games, the last of which was the 2006 All-Ireland quarter-final which the Banner won by 1-27 to 1-15 at Croke Park.

WEXFORD (SHC v Clare) - D Fitzhenry; M Travers, P Roche, K Rossiter; D Stamp, R Kehoe, C Kenny; PJ Nolan, D Lyng (capt); H Kehoe, W Doran, S Doyle; D Redmond, S Banville, R Jacob.
