Ireland must somehow pick themselves up after losing to Slovakia in a penalty shoot-out on Thursday in Bratislava – having had plenty of chances to put the game to bed in regulation minutes. While fielding something of a second string, Wales boss Ryan Giggs will nevertheless be looking for an improvement from his side following their 3-0 humbling in their friendly with England on Thursday.
Kenny is still searching for his first win since succeeding Mick McCarthy as Ireland manager, while his side will be looking to claim revenge for two defeats at the hands of the Welsh in the previous Nations League campaign.
Wales lead the Group H with six points from six, following a 1-0 win in their opening match of the campaign against Finland followed by a late win 1-0 win at home to Bulgaria. Aaron Ramsey is set to feature for the visitors, having missed Thursday’s match against England, but big guns Gareth Bale, Joe Allen and Hal Robson-Kanu all remain unavailable to Giggs.
Shane Long, Callum O’Dowda, Robbie Brady and Alan Browne could meanwhile all start for the home side.
