Steve Clarke made several changes from the side who lost their FIFA World Cup qualifying play-off to Ukraine for the Armenia match and will be expected to once again shuffle the pack for their trip to Dublin.

Everton’s Nathan Patterson is expected to have fully recovered from the injury that kept him out of the Ukraine match, but may not be able to force his way straight back into the starting line-up following a Man of the Match performance on his first start by Celtic’s Anthony Ralston in the win over Armenia.
