Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington has no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday night's Euro 2008 qualifier against Denmark at Windsor Park.

Jonny Evans replaced ankle victim George McCartney earlier in the week.

Worthington is likely to make four changes from the team that drew 1-1 with Sweden in Stockholm last month.

Chris Baird and Warren Feeney return from suspension, Evans should come in for McCartney and Keith Gillespie is set to replace Ivan Sproule.

Fulham defender Baird should be preferred to Gareth McAuley who faced the Swedes while Feeney is set to partner David Healy in the absence of the suspended Kyle Lafferty.

Evans was a surprise omission from the original squad but he has been drafted in by manager Nigel Worthington after McCartney's withdrawal.

McCartney suffered an ankle injury in West Ham's win over Derby on Saturday.

Northern Ireland face Denmark at Windsor Park on Saturday and take on Spain in Las Palmas four days later.


Worthington's side go into the double-header five points behind Spain and a further point adrift of Group F leaders Sweden.

Northern Ireland and Denmark are level on 17 points and both need to win their remaining two games and hope other results go their way to have a chance of qualifying.
