Republic of Ireland have been hit by a series of injuries ahead of their crucial World Cup qualifier against Wales on Friday evening.

With Shane Duffy and Robbie Brady, due to injury and suspension, respectively, already unavailable, Ireland's task on Friday looks an extremely tough one.

Colorado Rapids striker Kevin Doyle was due to meet up later today.

O'Neill said: "It's the lengthiest list of injuries we've had in my time here". However, other players will have to step up and be ready for Friday.

Midfielders: Aiden McGeady, Glenn Whelan, James McCarthy, Jeff Hendrick, Robbie Brady, Conor Hourihane, David Meyler, Eunan O'Kane, Wes Hoolahan, James McClean, Jonathan Hayes, Daryl Horgan, Callum O'Dowda.

With several defenders carrying knocks into last weekend's games O'Neill would have certainly have been keen to see what sort of action centre-half Ciaran Clark would see as Newcastle travelled to Birmingham.

Republic of Ireland SquadGoalkeepers: Darren Randolph, Keiren Westwood, Colin Doyle Defenders: Seamus Coleman, Cyrus Christie, Richard Keogh, Alex Pearce, John O'Shea, Andy Boyle, John Egan, Stephen Ward.

"We got news of the scan through this morning and the news it not great; not great for us, not great for him and not great for his club".

On Monday afternoon, the news got even worse.

Worryingly, Daryl Murphy is also now a doubt for the game. "We'll see what happens with the scan".

So Ireland resume their quest to qualify for the 2018 World Cup on Friday night and Martin O'Neill's side will be looking to cement their place at the top of Group D.
