Steve Staunton's injury worries are easing somewhat ahead of Saturday night's Euro 2008 qualifier against Slovakia.
Both John O'Shea and Paul McShane took full part in this morning's training session in Malahide and should be fit for the match.
Liverpool's Steve Finnan, however, has been ruled out of the game and may also miss next Wednesday's match against the Czech Republic.
