If it wasn't for bad luck the UCD manager, Collie O'Neill, would have no luck at all ahead of Thursday night's massive Europa League qualifying tie.

The Students pulled off a shock in the first qualifying round by defeating F91 Dudelange but must now face Slovakian outfit Slovan Bratislava with a makeshift defence.

Ryan McLaughlin (pictured in action v Dudelange) is definitely out after he slipped in the shower and broke his hand while Sean Coyne is suspended after he saw red in the second leg of the previous tie.

Manager Collie O'Neill rated Mick Leahy (swollen ankle) as 50/50 but admitted that he will probably not be fit on time but there is some hope for Tomas Boyle who will receive a painkilling injection on a knee that will be heavily strapped.

Striker Ryan Swan, who scored in both legs against Dudelange, is carrying a calf niggle but the boss revealed that he was expected to take part in last night's final training session before the squad jet off today.
