Wexford hurlers are expected to field a second-string attack in Saturday's National League quarter-final against Galway.

Chasing the county's first title since 1973, manager Davy Fitzgerald has had his plans thrown into disarray by an injury crisis that looks set to leave Jack O'Connor as the only starter in attack who has previous championship experience.

Lee Chin, Rory O'Connor, Paul Morris, Conor McDonald and David Dunne are all definitely ruled out of the starting line-up against Galway and it remains to be seen if any of them will be considered options off the bench.

Chin and O'Connor have missed training for three and a half and two weeks respectively. Morris has picked up a hamstring strain, McDonald has an Achilles issue and Dunne, who will definitely have no involvement this weekend, has injured a quad.
