Forest midfielder off to Stockholm

"It's good of Nigel Worthington to let me play for Nottingham Forest before linking up with the squad," said Clingan prior to the weekend win over Cheltenham.

"We're in such a good run of form at Forest at the moment that I really don't want to miss out on any games."

The Euro 2008 clash is a must-win game for the Irish if they are to make the finals next year.
