Dubliner Shaun Williams is a former PFAI Young Player of the Year having spent five years in the League of Ireland before moving to MK Dons in 2011. He subsequently moved to Millwall, where he has starred in central midfield earning a recent inclusion in the Republic of Ireland squad and making his debut in France.
Alan Browne has been in superb form for Preston North End although he has missed out in recently due to a tight hamstring. Alex Neil recently hailed the Cork man and explained: "he is a man I rely on."
Unfortunately for the pair, neither look set to be involved in a promotion push with Preston languishing in 17th place while Millwall occupy 20th.
