Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington is set to make two changes to his team for Wednesday night's Euro 2008 qualifier with Iceland in Reykjavik.

Warren Feeney and Chris Brunt are likely to return to the team in place of Kyle Lafferty and Stuart Elliott after the 1-0 defeat by Latvia.

The defence is likely to be unchanged with Stephen Craigan not included.

Striker David Healy has declared himself fit after missing training earlier in the week with a calf strain.

Keith Gillespie and Jonny Evans also trained after skaking off minor knocks and both are available for selection.

Iceland forward Eidur Gudjohnsen has recovered from a knee injury but he is expected to be among the substitutes.

The Northern Ireland trio were all injured in the 1-0 defeat in Riga on Saturday.

Sheffield United winger Gillespie sat out Monday's training session with a bruised knee while Manchester United defender Evans had a bruised ankle.

Former Chelsea star Gudjohnsen starred in Iceland's 3-0 win over Northern Ireland in the opening qualifier at Windsor Park just over a year ago.

Nigel Worthington's team have the incentive of going top of the group if they beat the hosts.

Sweden lead the standings with Northern Ireland and Spain three points back.

Northern Ireland have a superior head-to-head record over both teams, so with Sweden not playing on Wednesday it offers them the opportunity to take over top spot.
