JAMES McClean will make his first senior start for the Republic of Ireland against Bosnia-Herzegovina tomorrow.

The 23-year-old Sunderland winger will line up on the left, although manager Giovanni Trapattoni has indicated Aiden McGeady will also play some part in the game.

Defenders Richard Dunne and Sean St Ledger will both start after shaking off groin injuries, while Paul McShane, who was this week drafted in as cover, will start at right-back.

Keiren Westwood will take Shay Given's place in goal with the Aston Villa man recovering from a knee injury.

Team: Westwood; McShane, Dunne, St Ledger, Ward; Duff, Gibson, Whelan, McClean; Keane, Doyle.
