Clare could be without their captain for Saturday’s All Ireland Hurling Quarter Final.
Pat O’Connor is in a race against time to be fit for the showdown with Wexford after damaging his ankle in training.
The Banner come into the game off the back of defeat in the Munster Final against Cork but still know victory will take them back to Croke Park for the first time since being crowned champions in 2013.
Inagh/Kilnamona’s David Fitzgerald says they know they’ll have to be more clinical in front of goal than they were against the Rebels if they want to get the right result.
Meanwhile a former Clare captain is expressing concern that Banner fans may not make the trip to Pairc ui Chaoimh on Saturday.
The game is set for a 3pm start on Saturday afternoon with huge volumes of traffic expected around Cork City while the Live at the Marquee series continues which will add to congestion for post match traffic.
Tommy Guilfoyle says the timing of the game is far from ideal
