Dare I ask. What would be the best result in the Ukraine v ROI game? 

Depends on what we think's still possible in this group. If our sole aim is to finish above Ireland, then a Ukraine win. If we're still trying to win the group, probably a draw.

My fear would be Ireland getting a bit of momentum.

The Nations League, like other UEFA competitions, uses head-to-head record over goal difference, so if we finish level on points with Ireland the only way we can finish above them is through beating them 3-0, or by four, in Glasgow (which is very unlikely to happen).

Think we have to hope for a draw. Which is possible if Ireland have been given a boost from their result against us.

Maybe a draw as it would at least knock Ireland further away and make a straight head to head with us and Ukraine.

Obafemi and Duffy are both out for the Irish, their best two players on Saturday.

Yeah, subs aren't exactly making much of a claim for a spot. Their defence has had an armchair ride since the last goal. I get that there's no real need to push it, but we should be showing more here. thos e last two chances for Armenia are the best ones in 30 minutes.
