Eanna Martin returns to his goalkeeping roots for Wexford's Walsh Cup semi-final against Kilkenny at Bellefield.

The Wexford GAA commercial manager, who plays his club hurling in Kilkenny with Carrickshock, had featured outfield in recent seasons, but will wear the number one jersey tomorrow in the absence of the injured Mark Fanning.

Rory O'Connor, Damien Reck, Paul Morris and Lee Chin are also on the injured list as manager Davy Fitzgerald goes with an experimental line-up for the Model County's seasonal opener.

Wexford (SH v Kilkenny): Eanna Martin; Shane Reck, Liam Ryan, Conor Firman; Simon Donohue, Paudie Foley, Shaun Murphy; Aidan Nolan, Diarmuid O'Keeffe; Harry Kehoe, Kevin Foley, Ian Byrne; David Dunne, Cathal Dunbar, Conor McDonald.
