Niall McGinn replaces Jamie Ward as the only change for Northern Ireland for their Euro 2016 qualifier against the Faroe Islands in Torsvollur.

Chris Brunt, Kyle Lafferty and captain Steve Davis are fit to start the game but McGinn starts ahead of the injured Ward.

Michael McGovern also keeps his spot in goal as manager Michael O'Neil keeps the faith in the players that took part in their fixture against Romania back in June.

The Faroe Islands make two changes from their win against Greece, with Odmar Faero and Jonas Tor Naes replacing the banned Alti Gregersen and Bardur Hansen.
