Stephen Bradley says Shamrock Rovers “couldn’t be in a better scenario” heading into tonight’s Europa Conference League play-off with Flora Tallinn.

The Hoops travel to the Estonian capital for the first leg on the back of eight straight victories following home and away wins over Albanians KF Teuta.

Bradley made seven changes from the side that won 2-0 in Estoril on Thursday for Sunday’s league meeting with Drogheda United.

One of those changes, striker Aaron Greene, proved the difference maker as he tapped home a Graham Burke cross ten minutes into the second half.

Burke was another to impress after being named on the bench in Albania, and Bradley (below) sees it as evidence of just how strong the squad he’s put together is.

“I think we’ve got great options all over the pitch. I don’t see a first XI. I believe whatever XI we put out can go to any ground in the country and win the game.

“We made six changes today but it didn’t hurt us in any way,” the Jobstown native said. “We believe every player is ready to play and any team we put out we believe is good enough to go to any ground in the country and win the game. We really believe that.”
