Under 21s to play at Ballinamallard and Ballymena in coming days

Northern Ireland Under 21 manager Ian Baraclough has no doubts that his side can end 2019 on a high as they take on Hungary and Romania.

The U21s first face Hungary on Thursday 14 November at Ballinamallard United FC in an international friendly with kick off at 7pm.

Then its their final UEFA Euro 2021 qualifier of 2019 as they take on Romania at the Ballymena Showground on Tuesday 19 November (ko 5:30pm).

It's been a tough start for Baraclough's side who have played away in three of their opening four games of qualifying, gaining two points in those games with draws against Malta and Finland. 

The points tally doesn't tell the full story in terms of performances and assistant Andrew Crosby wants to right those wrongs in the upcoming home games.

Hear from manager Baraclough and his assistant, Crosby, in the video above.
