Ireland's injury woes continue as they head into crucial World Cup play-off
Time to do it the hard way.
What rotten luck Ireland has got through this World Cup qualifying.
Shane Long and Jon Walters were both ruled out of the game against Wales and we don't need reminding about Seamus Coleman suffering at the hands of Neil Taylor.
The team has been without its captain for a good chunk of the campaign.
Well, with Walters ruled out of the Wales games it looks like he will be out for the foreseeable future.
According to Sky Sports the player will be sidelined up until Christmas which would rule him out of the November play-offs.

And, of course, Irish fans are not best pleased about the news.
