Team News*
Shelbourne's Kameron Ledwidge and Derry City's Ronan Boyce joined-up with the squad earlier this week. All players trained yesterday ahead of today's fixture.
*
Manager Jim Crawford said: "We're fully focused on Luxembourg and have been working on aspects of our game during the week and we believe we can score goals to win it. It's a short campaign of 10 games, so it's a sprint from the begining, so you're looking to get three points in every game.*
"It's great to be able to play in front of fans in Tallaght Stadium and the players are really looking forward to it. There was a real buzz last year playing in Tallaght last year and one thing I can say is that the fans can be impressed with the players we have here because they are a really good bunch."
