Devlin delight at B-team's draw
Richie Byrne celebrates his goal at Excelsior Stadium

Republic of Ireland B-team coach Pat Devlin admitted to an uncertain personal future but saw encouraging signs in Tuesday's draw with Scotland.

The Republic are seeking a new manager to replace Steve Staunton.

And, after the 1-1 draw with Scotland B in Airdrie, Devlin said: "No-one knows what's going on.

"But we brought seven new players together here and there were a few lads out there pushing for places. That's a nice legacy to leave."

Devlin's side were on the receiving end of a late equaliser, despite having dominated the game.

But he concluded: "I'm very, very pleased with the outcome - some of the lads were fantastic.

"We got them all on and that was the most important thing.

"But, from a result point of view, it was disappointing to lose the goal."

Devlin said that Dundee United striker Noel Hunt had suffered bruising, while Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Glenn Whelan had picked up a hip injury.

But he thought that both would be fit for their club's games at the weekend.
