Martin O'Neill has said that subject to medical approval Curtis Davies will return to action against Juventus in the Peace Cup final.
Davies' substitution in the semi final against Porto was purely a precautionary measure and an effort to make sure further complications didn't occur and as of this morning, Davies feels much better and doesn't seem to have lasting niggles, so hopefully it'll go down as just one of those things and not keep rearing it's head as the season progresses.
Speaking on the official site, Monny explained:
'Curtis has had a shoulder problem in the past. It started way back when he was at West Bromwich Albion. Interestingly he knew nothing about it at the time.
'If you remember he had a problem with it last season and it seemed to go away.
'It caused him a problem, he had to come off but he's feeling a lot better now. He is willing to give it a go. If that's the case and if it's fine with the medical staff, we will do so. If it's too much of a discomfort, we will leave it.'
We all know the shoulder problem plagued Davies' performances towards the end of the season, I'm not so sure it disappeared as opposed to he continued to plug away to be honest but fingers crossed a rest and some padding and he'll be as good as new.
As for our other shoulder candidate, Monny added that the outlook for Petrov was looking good:
'The news initially is pleasing although it's still an injury which can cause you an awful lot of problems.
'At this moment, we are hopeful it might settle down and he can play with it. We would then monitor it on a game to game basis. 'We were concerned that he might have needed an operation, which could have kept him out for four months. That would have been a major blow.
'At this moment, we are reasonably happy with it but we will see how it goes. He isn't out of the woods yet.'
