Worthington: Faroes won't be easy
Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington insists tomorrow's game against the Faroe Islands will be no walkover in a match his side have to win if they are to keep alive their hopes of reaching the UEFA EURO 2012 finals.
The Faroes are still regarded as the minnows of Group C, but took a point off Worthington's side in Toftir earlier in the campaign before pulling off a surprise 2-0 victory over Estonia. They remain bottom of the standings, though, and a poor record away from home means Northern Ireland will be firm favourites to take three points at Windsor Park.
Victory would leave Worthington's side two points behind second-placed Slovenia with a game in hand, but Worthington does not believe they will be allowed to run rampant. "We need to win and to keep on the heels of the opposition," Worthington said.
"We still have a game in hand, that's what we are looking at and that will come through in the team. But the Faroes will be well organised and behind the ball. It won't be easy."
