MK Dons defender Lee Hodson and Rotherham midfielder Michael O'Connor have been added to an initial 20-man squad for the rescheduled game, which also sees Kyle Lafferty return from suspension.

Midfielder Chris Brunt sits out after incurring a ban of his own.

Forwards Will Grigg and Jamie Ward are available again after injury but Sammy Clingan (knee) is absent.

The Group F game, which had been planned for March but had to be called off due to snowy weather in Belfast, will be played at Windsor Park.

Northern Ireland have taken three points from their five games so far in the group.
