    No doubt about that, really should be one up.

    My thoughts too, Boyce needs support, to me that's a fairly weak line up, only a friendly I suppose but would love to see Laff, McGinn and Jones at some stage, in fact empty the bench!

    First start for Michael Smith and Gavin Whyte, Boyce the lone striker.
  4. BPF DALLAS CATHCART EVANS LEWIS MCNAIR DAVIS THOMPSON JONES SMYTH LAFFERTY An attacking line up with a bit of youth and experience.
  5. ROI - 0 N. IRELAND - 1 Dont care who scores as long as we beat them.

    Good to see Thompson, Hazard and Smyth, Mick must see something in Vassell for him to be named again otherwise a fairly strong squad.

    Any chance of a squad announcement?

    Carton House has been used quite a bit in the last few years as Mick and the players and staff have great access to training facilities and other amenities and they don't have to get on a coach to do it. They could well be using it this time and then come up on the Fri and prepare here for Austria.

    Post mortem

    Agree with your last paragraph, would love to see a Grigg/Boyce partnership form, they came on against Bosnia home and there looks to be something there.

    Post mortem

    We have built our recent success on having a mean defence and scoring at the other end, that defence is now in transition and will certainly take time to gel as the last 3 games testify. There is definitely the makings of a good team here and it will eventually click so as Mick said after the play off loss there will be bumps in the road and that's what we are having now. I still think we will get it right and qualify for Euro 2020 as we are formidable at Windsor and given the amount of chances we created away in the last two games, if we cut out out the daft mistakes, we can definitely take points away from home. There is plenty to be positive about as Neil Lennon summed up well on Sky last night.

    Line up/match thread

    Would love to have seen Magennis and Boyce up front, a bit conservative from Mick, hopefully Whyte and Jones introduced 2nd half.

    Correct about a minor transition, it's about giving game time to the likes of BPF, Whyte, Lewis and Saville, I think Michael said recently that within the next 12-18 months a number of U21 players should also be ready for the step up so things are changing so performances and big game experience are key for him at the moment and not so much results, he's building towards the Euros and these games are perfect for that but with regard to our first two opening Nations League games we created 34 chances and only scored 1 goal which after tonight will probably be in the forties but hopefully with a lot more goals.

    Post Mortem

    He saved us in San Marino with 20 mins left and facing the unspeakable, against Austria was a thankless task as with no supply and no partner you are going to struggle away from home, if he plays tonight I hope Michael gives him some support.

    Squad formation v Bosnia

    Looks like Boyce took part in training this morning so fingers crossed

    Radio Ulster said Grigg is out with a hamstring injury.
