Coventry City goalkeeper Keiren Westwood has joined up with the Republic of Ireland squad following the withdrawal of Dean Kiely.
West Bromwich Albion shot-stopper Kiely, 38, has been ruled out of Wednesday night's friendly against Poland with a wrist injury sustained in training.
Westwood will now compete with Scunthorpe United's Joe Murphy to provide cover for first-choice keeper Shay Given.
Reading striker Noel Hunt also joined the squad following the injuries which have cost head coach Giovanni Trapattoni the services of captain Robbie Keane and winger Aiden McGeady.
Hull City duo Caleb Folan and Paul McShane, as well as Manchester City defender Richard Dunne and Given, trained with their team-mates at Gannon Park in Malahide on Monday morning.
