ROBBIE Brady hopes that a travel bug can hinder Georgia in Dublin tonight as the men from Tbilisi try to damage the Euro 2016 hopes of another Celtic nation.

Scotland's hopes of making it to France took a den with their loss in Tbilisi on Friday, Scotland's preparations for tonight's home tie with Germany suffering from a travel mix-up with meant a late exit from Tbilisi.

"I don't know how Georgia will react to their win, maybe they were out celebrating their win but they have a long way to travel and we will be up for it tonight," Brady told The Herald.

"The travel is a killer at times, and Georgia is a long trip, you have to stop on the way in between, it was a hard place for us to get to last year and it will have be tough for them to get to Dublin, so hopefully that will eat into them.

"We are still in this race for qualification. I think Poland can be caught, no one is too far away from us and we still have to play Germany and Poland. Tonight is massive, they have a long way to travel and we need to let the Georgians know this won't be an easy night for them," added Brady, now established as Ireland's first-choice left back.

"I didn't start in Tbilisi, I came on for the last few minutes but I will be buzzing if I get a start tonight. I am enjoying this run in the Irish side," he added.
