Duffy injury a huge blow for Republic - Kilbane

Former Republic of Ireland player Kevin Kilbane says the loss of Brighton defender Shane Duffy for the World Cup qualifier against Wales on 24 March is a "huge blow".

Duffy will be out for at least six weeks with a foot injury which requires surgery, so will also sit out the home friendly against Iceland four days later.

The 25-year-old fractured a metatarsal in the closing stages of the 3-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
