    • 17.40 Harry Redknapp is talking about Michael O'Neill's prospects of landing the Northern Ireland job. He said: "Michael's done a top-class job here and I'm sure he'd be a good choice for the Northern Ireland job if they go for him. It's going to be difficult to qualify, but we're going to try to win the game and see what happens from there. I've left a few behind but I've still brought seven full internationals with me."
    • 17.35 Shamrock Rovers boss Michael O'Neill hopes his young side can impress against the Premier League side. "The options for young Irish players are outside this league. A lot of these players could do well in England or Scotland..and this match is an opportunity for them to put themselves in the shop window."

Giovani Dos Santos has been passed fit, Niko Kranjcar has overcome a thigh injury and Younes Kaboul starts.
    • 17.25 SHAMROCK NEWS: With the Irish season already finished and the league in dire financial straits, this game represents the last opportunity for many Shamrock players to put themselves in the shop window.
