Republic quartet rated doubtful
EURO 2008 QUALIFIER
Andy O'Brien
Group D: Rep of Ireland v Czech Republic
Date: 11 October
Kick-off: 1930 BST
Venue: Lansdowne Road, Dublin
Coverage: Updates on the BBC Sport website
Republic of Ireland boss Steve Staunton has injury doubts over four players ahead of Wednesday night's Euro 2008 qualifier against the Czech Republic.

Paddy Kenny and Stephen Ireland have both had scans on hamstring injuries while Andy O'Brien is also extremely doubtful with an ankle problem.

Kevin Doyle is making progress from an ankle injury, but the Reading striker remains a concern for the game.

Andy Reid and Alan Quinn return to the squad after missing the Cyprus game.

Liam Miller is out of the squad after missing Saturday's 5-2 humiliation because of a foot injury.

Richard Dunne is suspended for Wednesday's game after his sending off in Nicosia.

Shay Given, Steven Reid, Stephen Carr are already out of the Lansdowne Road game because of injury.

If Sheffield United goalkeeper Kenny is out, Brighton's Wayne Henderson - who has two substitute caps to his name - will be thrown in at the deep end against the Czechs.

The only positives are that Reid is available again after he remained behind with Charlton to undergo an extensive fitness regime, as is Quinn who missed the Cyprus game after the death of his mother.

Birmingham defender Stephen Kelly was called into the squad on Sunday.
