Oman in Hoops squad for Spurs

SHAMROCK Rovers have added defender Ken Oman to their squad ahead of Thursday's European tie away to Tottenham.

Oman has not played since he suffered an injury in their Champions League defeat away to FC Copenhagen, forcing the defender to miss the last 14 games in all competitions for the Hoops, but he may feature for the side this week after he was fit enough to rejoin his team-mates in training. "Ken did some training yesterday so he's back in the squad," said Rovers boss Michael O'Neill after yesterday's 5-2 win over Bray Wanderers.

"But realistically when we can get him on the pitch is another matter because of game time.

"It would be very unfair to throw him straight into the game, but it's something we may have to consider."

Craig Sives and Ryan Thompson sat out yesterday's game but should be available for the Spurs match, but Dean Kelly will not be fit.
