Can the U21s make it two wins in two?

Northern Ireland Under 21s face Albania at Mourneview Park with sights set on continuing their 100% start to Euro2019 qualifying.

After their opening win against Estonia, with goals from David Parkhouse and captain Liam Donnelly, they now face Albania and Slovakia in a double header.

Albania are the first challengers as the two sides meet at Mourneview Park and manager Ian Baraclough hopes to keep the momentum going, he said: "To win that first game was not only great for the group but for myself and the coaches. 

"No one is saying we will qualify but why not strive for that and surprise one or two. It's what we are looking to do and improve each time we are together. If we can win along the way then that's great. 

The game at Mourneview Park kicks off at 7:30pm with free entry. So come and see if the U21s can make it two wins in their opening two games before travelling to Slovakia to face their hosts on September 5.
