Newcastle goalkeeper Rob Elliot has received his first call-up to the Republic of Ireland squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Germany and Kazakhstan.

The former Charlton player was drafted in as a replacement for Birmingham's Darren Randolph, who injured a shoulder in Saturday's defeat by Bolton.

Crystal Palace defender Damien Delaney was called up to the provisional squad earlier this week and remains in the final 23.

But striker Jon Walters will be assessed by Stoke's medical staff after being substituted during the 1-0 defeat to Fulham with a groin problem.

Paul McShane, Stephen Quinn and Paul Green have been placed on stand-by as Ireland prepare to face the Germans on October 11 before taking on the Kazakhs in Dublin four days later.
