Republic of Ireland vs Gibraltar (Preview)

Allen Bula has no fresh injury concerns ahead of tomorrow’s away match against the Republic of Ireland.

It looks like Bula has a full compliment of players at his disposal, as no news on injuries has been reported by either the GFA or local press. Hopefully this is the case come tomorrow.

Kyle Casciaro is likely to start up top, while it remains to be seen if Bula sticks with the 4-1-4-1 or switches to something different for an away match in front of potentially 50,000 people.

As for Ireland, Martin O’Neill has had a few injury issues. With Seamus Coleman, Shay Given and James McCarthy all withdrawing from injury last week, his injury woes have been added to with the news Richard Keogh is unavailable tomorrow.

However, such is the strength of the Irish national player pool that they have been able to replace said players adequately, and will still be the stronger of the two teams tomorrow.

LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane is expected to start, and will be looking to add to an already impressive international goalscoring record. Premier League involvement will come from the likes of Aiden McGeady, John O’Shea and Darron Gibson, to name but a few plying their trade in England’s top division.
