  • Hoolahan, Clark and Arter join Republic of Ireland's growing injury list

Midfielders: Aiden McGeady, Glenn Whelan, James McCarthy, Jeff Hendrick, Robbie Brady, Conor Hourihane, David Meyler, Eunan O'Kane, Wes Hoolahan, James McClean, Jonathan Hayes, Daryl Horgan, Callum O'Dowda. "We got the news through about the scan this morning and obviously it's not great for us, not great for him and not great for his club".

"It's the lengthiest list of list of injuries that I've known in my time in the job", he continued, "and it's come at an awkward time but we have other players who can step up".

Although he was due to link up with the squad, Martin O'Neill today revealed that Hoolahan will now remain at his club after having a scan on the quad injury.

"I have often said this before, you just curse your luck and get on with it", he added, when asked about absentees.

Ireland will be without six players for Friday night's key Group D clash with Wales in Dublin.

Defenders: Seamus Coleman, Cyrus Christie, Richard Keogh, Alex Pearce, John O'Shea, Andy Boyle, John Egan, Stephen Ward.

The clash against the Gareth Bale led Euro 2016 semi-finalists is a crucial one in the hunt for an automatic qualification spot for the tournament in Russian Federation in 2018, with Ireland now sitting on top of the group on 10 points, 2 clear of Serbia and 4 clear of Wales.

Ireland now sit four points clear of Friday's opponents and O'Neill's side will know that victory over the Euro 2016 semi-finalists will put a real dent in the Welsh hopes of making it to Russian Federation.

"Bale is an absolutely top-class player", he said. He has proved that, winning Champions League medals with Real Madrid.

Wes Hoolahan, however, did join up with the squad in Dublin, which will be encouraging for the Ireland manager as the midfielder came off injured for Norwich at the weekend.

I'm feeling oddly confident about this game against Wales even though O'Neill and the rest of us have virtually no idea a week out from the game which team he will be able to put out. "It's going to take an almighty effort to win this game".
