Villa's Dunne, Everton's Gibson back for Ireland

Republic of Ireland could be boosted by the possible returns of Richard Dunne and Darron Gibson for the vital Euro2012 clash with Spain on Thursday.

Giovanni Trapattoni's men need a positive result against the reigning European champions after losing 3-1 to Croatia on Sunday and Aston Villa centre-back Dunne and Everton midfielder Gibson could give them the impetus they need.

Dunne missed the opener because of badly blistered feet whilst Gibson had a thigh problem but both players appear to be available for the Group C clash in Gdansk.
