Manager Michael O'Neill has lost influential defender Jonny Evans for the game with Andy Little and Alex Bruce also ruled out with foot and knee injuries respectively.

While Little and Bruce would be unlikely to make the starting XI for the Group F clash, Evans (groin) is one of Michael O'Neill's most important players and was one of the top performers in the side's memorable 1-1 draw in Portugal last month.

Burnley's Danny Lafferty has also been added to the squad as cover.
