Ireland team to play Armenia

Simon Cox will start in attack alongside Kevin Doyle for Ireland in tomorrow's vital Euro 2012 qualifier with Armenia in the Aviva Stadium. It was widely expected that in-form West Brom striker Shane Long would partner doyle, in the event of Robbie Keane failing his fitness battle.

Stephen Kelly comes in for the suspended Stephen Ward.

Richard Dunne returns from his ban to the Irish central defence with Darren O'Dea dropping out.

Ireland team to play Armenia:

Shay Given, Stephen Kelly, Sean St Ledger, Richard Dunne, John O'Shea, Aidan McGeady, Keith Andrews, Glenn Whelan, Damien Duff, Kevin Doyle, Simon Cox.
