Westwood a doubt for Ireland Euro qualifier

Giovanni Trapattoni's goalkeeping problems for the upcoming European Championship qualifier against Macedonia later this month continue to mount with news that Keiren Westwood failed to return for the second half as his Coventry side went down to a 4-1 home defeat to Bristol City at the Ricoh Arena.

Manchester City keeper Shay Given is already out of the crucial qualifier after undergoing surgery on a shoulder injury.

Early reports from the Ricoh Arena suggest Westwood could be out of contention for six weeks.
