Premier League

The dismal choices open to Irish manager Martin O’Neill were evident from the weekends Premier League action. Of the nine games on Saturday and Sunday, only 5 Irish players started their respective games. David Meyler got a rare start for Hull in their away defeat to Chelsea and ended up being ¬†booked. Brady, who has been a regular starter recently, came on with half an hour remaining . Marc Wilson and Jon Walters both started for Stoke but Glen Whelan, who is still recovering from injury, was an unused sub. Both John O’Shea and Ciaran Clark enjoyed decent games for their respective clubs.

Moving on to Mondays match between Everton and QPR where there were three Irish starters. McGeady had a good game, assisting the second Everton goal and linking well with Mirallas a number of times. Coleman had a quite game, returning to his favourite right back slot. Defensively he had very little to do. Richard Dunne had a busy night  and was unlucky not to prevent the second goal crossing the line.

Chris McCann in action

Championship

Harry Arter scored for Bournemouth in their impressive 5-3 victory over Cardiff. Jon Douglas, who has 8 caps for Ireland and is enjoying a fine season found the net for Brentford in their 3-1 victory over Blackburn. Chris McCann scored his first goal of the season as he makes his comeback from injury. Ipswich, with their Irish contingent, missed the opportunity to take top spot with a goalless draw against Bolton.

 

Elsewhere

Other scorers over the weekend include Padraig Almond for Morecambe and John O’Sullivan for Accrington Stanley. North of the border, Anthony Stokes and Adam Rooney both enjoyed find games with both players scoring. Another scorer was Andy Jackson for Brechin
