Matt Doherty happy to switch flanks to solve Ireland’s left-back dilemma

9 October 2019

Matt Doherty is ready to step into the breach as the Republic of Ireland attempt to take a significant stride towards Euro 2020 qualification in Georgia.

The 27-year-old Wolves defender has found himself in direct competition with Ireland captain Seamus Coleman for a starting place on the right since catapulting himself into contention with his club form in the Premier League.

However, he is the leading candidate to replace the suspended Enda Stevens at left-back in Tbilisi on Saturday evening, and will have no qualms about doing so.
