CILLIAN SHERIDAN HAS really hit the ground running since moving to Polish club Jagiellonia Bialystok.

The Cavan-born striker, 28, made the switch from Cypriot outfit Omonia at the end of February and in six league matches, he’s scored four goals and created three assists.

On Saturday, the ex-Celtic, CSKA Sofia and Apoel Nicosia man bagged the winner away to Piast Gliwice. Sheridan headed home a cross from team-mate Ivan Runje on 25 minutes in the 1-0 victory.

With seven games remaining, Jagiellonia sit one point clear of Legia Warsaw at the top of the Ekstraklasa table meaning there’s a real possibility Sheridan will be playing Champions League football next season.

We’ve been calling for Ireland boss Martin O’Neill to include the centre forward in his squad for some time, and with friendly matches against Mexico and Uruguay coming up next month, it’s the perfect opportunity to bring him back into the fold.

Sheridan has three senior caps for the Boys in Green — the last of which came in a friendly with Argentina back in August 2010.
