Irish strikers in Sunday action…24/02/2019

Shane Long was not in the Southampton matchday squad for their two nil Premier League defeat by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Michael Obafemi, who returned to training last week following his lengthy injury absence, was introduced from the substitute bench at half-time but suffered another injury and was replaced just twenty minutes after his arrival.
Fellow striker James Collins led the attack for League One leaders Luton Town who were held to a one all draw by visitors Coventry City at Kenilworth Road.
