Kevin Doyle has been forced out of Scotland game with groin injury

The sooner the match comes the less time it leaves for the rest of the squad to get injured

Too late for a Sheridan call-up?

Since Sunday, we’ve seen James McCarthy, Marc Wilson and Kevin Doyle pick up knocks that have affected their involvement in Ireland’s preparations for their crucial Euro 2016 clash with Scotland.

A decision on James McCarthy has yet to be made but Marc Wilson and, as of yesterday, Kevin Doyle have both had to withdraw from Friday’s clash.

A statement from the FAI yesterday read:┬á“The Football Association of Ireland today confirmed that Kevin Doyle has withdrawn from the Irish squad, and will return to his club for treatment on a groin injury.”

Go on Mart! Give Cillian a ring. He’s sound out we promise.
