Henderson has been drafted into the squad as a replacement for Keiren Westwood who has returned to Sheffield Wednesday after a pre-existing ankle injury flared up today in training at the FAI National Training Centre.

Brentford’s Alan Judge, who stayed behind at Brentford to continue his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury, has been cleared to join up with the squad after training for the past few days with his club and is due to arrive at the team’s Dublin base this evening.

Shane Long will not be involved in Friday’s first leg as he will remain at Southampton for further treatment on his ankle injury but he has not been ruled out of next Monday’s second leg at the Aviva Stadium.
