Galway goalkeeper James Skehill suffered a dislocated shoulder in his county's final training session before Sunday’s All Ireland Hurling final replay with Kilkenny, but still looks set to play in the final.

The Tribesmen's goalkeeper, who made a stunning save in the first final from Colin Fennelly, sustained the injury while diving for the ball in training.

Skehill was been taken to hospital for where doctors put the shoulder back into place and he is now considered likely to feature in Sunday's showpiece final.

The goalkeeper was last night named in an unchanged Galway team whereas Kilkenny manager Brian Cody made two changes from the drawn final.

Galway team to play Kilkenny in the All-Ireland Hurling final replay on Sunday: James Skehill; Johnny Coen, Kevin Hynes, Fergal Moore; Niall Donoghue, Tony Og Regan, David Collins; Iarlaith Tannian, Andy Smith, David Burke, Niall Burke, Cyril Donnellan; Damien Hayes, Joe Canning, James Regan.
