U21s caretaker boss Andy Crosby looks ahead to Ukraine test

Northern Ireland U21s’ caretaker boss Andy Crosby is hoping his players can finish their Euro qualifying campaign on a high. 

The two teams faced each other in Ballymena last month with Paul O’Neill netting the only goal of the game to give Northern Ireland all three points. 

Now they will go head-to-head at the Kolos Stadium, Kovalivka (16.30 GMT) as the campaign comes to a close.

“We have lost players for a variety of reasons – two of them, Conor (Hazard) and Ethan (Galbraith) have gone to be part of the senior group which is what we’re all here for and trying to do,” said Crosby.

“It’s a different squad but when one door closes another one opens so hopefully the lads who are here can take this opportunity and finish the campaign on a high.”
