Anthony O'Connor and John O'Sullivan are the only two players on international duty this Tuesday.

The duo are with the Republic of Ireland squad for their UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifier against Montenegro in Podgorica.

A win for the Irish will see them leapfrog their opponents in the table into second place, but they'll be a tough proposition after the Montenegrins drew 1-1 with league leaders Germany on Friday, the first points the Germans have dropped after five games.

Elsewhere, Grant Hanley has joined Jordan Rhodes in pulling out of the Scotland squad.

The defender has a slight muscle injury and misses out on the match in Molde against Norway.
