Dundalk's hopes of becoming the first Irish club to qualify for the Champions League group stages have been dealt another blow.
Back-up striker Ciaran Kilduff has been ruled out of the second-leg of the play-off round tie against Legia Warsaw with a knee injury that he picked up in training.
The Lilywhites are already without inspirational skipper Stephen O'Donnell who is suspended after picking up another booking in the first-leg defeat at the Aviva Stadium.
The duo are the only new absentees that manager Stephen Kenny must deal with ahead of the clash in Poland, with the home side holding a 2-0 advantage in the tie.
Kenny knows that his team have a mountain to climb at the Stadion Wojska Polskiego tomorrow night (19:45), with Dundalk needing a three goal victory to progress to the promised land and the group stages of the tournament.
