The tenacious midfielder sealed his move from Bohemians this week and is likely to be included in Chris Coleman's matchday 18, although a starting berth is unlikely as the Irishman settles into English football.

Goalkeeper Keiren Westwood has recovered from the sickness bug that forced him off at half-time in last weekend's FA Cup draw at Portsmouth and he should be okay to take his place between the sticks.

Coleman welcomes back on-loan defender Leon Barnett and striker Gary Madine after they were denied permission to play against Pompey but midfielder Jack Cork has returned to parent club Chelsea and will therefore not be available.

Long-term absentees Ben Turner, Jordan Clarke and Isaac Osbourne returned to training last month but are still not quite match fit enough to be considered.
