PNE captain Browne will be hoping to collect his 12th cap whilst Molumby has five to his name so far.

Stephen Kenny's men will play on March 24, March 27 and March 30 in a busy international break for Ireland.

Browne will have some time to recover before and after the break though due to his suspension for a straight red card against Middlesbrough.
