Defender Fitness Doubt

Wolves defender Matt Doherty is a doubt for the Republic of Ireland’s upcoming games against Northern Ireland and Denmark.

The right-back picked up a nasty facial injury towards the end of the clash against Arsenal at the weekend and he has now been sent for an assessment. The 26-year-old could miss the two games for the Republic but will wait to see what the advice is from the specialist.


Doherty has been one of the mainstay’s in Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this season and the boss will be anxious to see him back at Wolves if he is not going to feature for Ireland.
