Johnson blow for Northern Ireland
Birmingham midfielder Damien Johnson
Damien Johnson faces a race against time for Liechtenstein tie
Birmingham's Damien Johnson looks set miss Northern Ireland's Euro 2008 qualifier against Liechtensein on 22 August because of a hamstring injury.

Johnson suffered a suspected tear in a pre-season friendly against Walsall at the Bescot Stadium last weekend.

The 28-year-old Blues skipper has undergone a scan to determine the extent of the problem.

Johnson's absence in the Northern Ireland midfield would be a blow to new manager Nigel Worthington.

If Johnson's injury is of a serious nature, Worthington may look to Grant McCann, Michael Hughes or Steve Lomas to fill the void for the Windsor Park clash.
