U21s go top of Group Two in Euros qualifying

Northern Ireland midfielder Mark Sykes is hoping he can put two goals to his name after the U21s beat Estonia 4-2.

The Glenavon man netted his first from the edge of the box to put the U21s 3-2 up and then he hit a great effort from 30 yards which may have defected in off the keeper. Either way, Sykes was the key man in getting the U21s the win after they went 2-1 down in the first half.

On whether he'll be trying to claim two goals, he said: "Yeah, I think I will! The boys have been taking the mick saying it was an own goal from the keeper but I think I'll take it."

He also shared his thoughts on scoring at his home pitch Mourneview Park. He said: "Yeah, it's always nice. Obviously this is my first game back in the squad and it's nice to come back here to Glenavon and get the two."
