The Republic of Ireland can move up to second in Group C with a win over Austria in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers on Tuesday.

However, the home side may be without their captain for the clash, as Robbie Keane is battling with the calf injury that forced him off during their draw with Sweden on Friday.

Following Friday's draw, manager Giovanni Trapattoni has said that he believes that his side will make it to the Brazil tournament.

Meanwhile, Austria will be confident heading into the clash, having thrashed the Faroe Islands 6-0 on Friday.

Philipp Hosiner is likely to be retain his place in the starting lineup, having scored a brace during the previous game.
