Keane was forced to miss Friday's 3-0 defeat to Germany but the Los Angeles Galaxy striker is understood to be likely to feature against the Kazakhs.

Anthony Stokes replaced Keane in Cologne and boss Noel King could opt for a straight swap.

But the Celtic star impressed against the Germans and given that Tuesday's opponents are far weaker opposition, King may play both men.

Norwich midfielder Anthony Pilkington is ruled out, but King has John O'Shea and Richard Dunne available again after suspension, though centre-back replacements Ciaran Clark and Damien Delaney both performed creditably on Friday.
