thumbnail Hello,

The Hull City winger and Aston Villa defender have been ruled out of the upcoming friendlies with Latvia and Poland due to injury

Robbie Brady and Ciaran Clark have been forced to pull out of the Republic of Ireland squad for the upcoming friendly internationals with Latvia and Poland after picking up injuries on club duty.

Hull City winger Brady has been ruled out with a groin injury. New Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane was at Villa Park on Saturday to watch Ciaran Clark in action for Aston Villa against Cardiff City, but will be disappointed to learn that the defender picked up a foot injury.

Manager Martin O'Neill has not called up any replacements to the squad as the Boys in Green prepare to take on Latvia on November 15, before a trip to Poznan to face Poland four days later.
