Wexford will be without Aidan Nolan for Sunday's Leinster SHC final clash with Kilkenny after the Central Hearings Committee upheld a two-match ban imposed on the forward for using abusive language towards a referee.

Substitute Nolan confronted referee Fergal Horgan after he blew the final whistle in the sides' dramatic draw two weeks ago and was shown a red card.

The clock at Wexford Park is believed to have incorrectly suggested the referee had not played the announced four minutes of additional time.

The Half Way House-Bunclody man will also miss any Leinster replay or an All-Ireland semi/quarter-final as it is his second category-three dismissal within 48 weeks.

The first was when he was sent off for a pull on Limerick's Cian Lynch during last November's Fenway Classic, an 11-a-side promotional tournament.

Nolan has the right to appeal the decision to the GAA's Central Appeals Committee.
