Sam Allardyce has confirmed that he expects John O’Shea to miss the Republic of Irelands’ Euro qualifying play-off game against Bosnia after suffering a recurrence of his hamstring strain. "He hasn't been able to get fit for us in two weeks, so he's not going to get fit from a hamstring in 10 days."
The Sunderland defender returned to training on Thursday and the Blacks Cats’ boss was confident that O’Shea would be available for the visit of Southampton along with Fabio Borini, Ola Toivonen and Younes Kaboul on Saturday. However, the club revealed soon after the team news was announced that O’Shea was still feeling muscular discomfort and hadn’t been considered for the match-day squad. The setback is likely to mean at least another two weeks on the side-lines. "I wouldn't think he'll be anywhere near available for Ireland," Allardyce said. Nov 7 - 4:01 PM
