Jeff Hendrick emerges unscathed from training with the Republic of Ireland ahead of their World Cup playoff first leg against Denmark on Saturday.

Jeff Hendrick has emerged unscathed from training with the Republic of Ireland ahead of their World Cup playoff first leg against Denmark.

The Burnley midfielder had been a doubt for his nation after he sat out Wednesday's training with a glute injury, instead partaking in a light session on his own.

However, Hendrick was able to train with the rest of his teammates on Thursday before the squad headed to Copenhagen for Saturday's crucial match.

The 25-year-old was joined on the training pitch by club colleague Stephen Ward, with the full-back having been rested as a precaution earlier in the week.

Hendrick started all four games at the finals of Euro 2016 and has become a mainstay of Martin O'Neill's midfield.
