“Then, in the last two games, we have come up short in front of goal. It doesn’t mean everything is wrong, it just means we haven’t capitalised on the opportunities.
“We have to improve in that regard and make sure we all work hard and believe in what we are doing and hit the back of the net.”The Republic are dogged by defensive issues with captain Seamus Coleman having left the squad and returned to Everton due to a groin problem that kept him out of the Ukraine game, while Sheffield United’s John Egan, who was in line to deputise as skipper, damaged an ankle in that defeat and also misses out.
