Gerry McQuaid has made one change to his Dublin side to face Wexford Senior Camogie team this evening in Parnell Park at 6pm.

The result of this vital last group two game in the Glen Dimplex All Ireland Senior Camogie Championship will have serious implications for either of the sides at either end of the table.

The Wexford Camogie squad travel to the Capital still with an outside chance of making the championship quarter finals, a win over Dublin by a large scoring margin and a defeat for Kilkenny by Tipperary by a sizeable margin could see the girls from the south-east coast pipping Kilkenny on score difference to a quarter final place.

Dublin on the other hand sit bottom of the group, are out of the running for a place in the knockout stages and need nothing short of a win to avoid a three way relegation play-off.

And that’s also the danger for Wexford, anything but a win or a draw against Dublin will see them sink to the bottom of the group and into a battle to avoid relegation from the senior ranks.

Both sides met earlier in the year in the Leinster Senior Championship quarter final with Dublin coming out on top that day thanks to two second half goals to give them a 2-13 to 1-14 win.

And with so much at stake for both teams it’s set up to be an intriguing and probably nervous and tight encounter on this evening in Parnell Park.
