Kevin Doyle ruled out of Ireland friendly
Rob Elliot and Andy Reid also withdraw from squad to face Serbia in Dublin
Kevin Doyle (left), Andy Reid and Rob Elliot will all miss next week’s friendly against Serbia.
The Ireland striker played all 90 minutes at Loftus Road, laying on the pass for Jermain Jenas’s equaliser in the second half, but will sit out next week’s friendly against Serbia due to the thigh problem.
Reid was understood to have had an operation on a hernia problem last week, although the FAI statement indicated he would be missing because of a groin injury, while Newcastle’s Elliot is nursing a knee problem.
Ireland manager Martin O’Neill will not make any additions to his 26-man squad at this stage.
