Westmeath's Derek McNicholas
Derek McNicholas has forced his way into the Westmeath team for tomorrow's Leinster SHC quarter-final against Galway at Cusack Park.

The Lough Lene Gaels clubman came off the bench to score two goals in the first round win over Carlow and is retained at full forward with Alan Devine dropping to the bench.

Dual stars Paul Greville and Brendan Murtagh are named in the half forward line alongside Ciaran Curley, while 17-year-old Cathal Scally - who is centre back on the Westmeath minor team which has reached the Leinster semi-final - starts in goal after making an impressive debut against the Barrowsiders.

Westmeath (SH v Galway): C Scally; C Flanagan, D McCormack, A McGrath; E Price, A Mitchell, P Gilsenan; N Flanagan, B Smyth (captain); C Curley, P Greville, B Murtagh; J Shaw, D McNicholas, D Carty.
