Martin Paterson targets Northern Ireland start against Portugal

Martin Paterson hopes to keep his place in the Northern Ireland team for the World Cup qualifier against Portugal at Windsor Park.

The Huddersfield Town striker scored the only goal in the surprise 1-0 win over Russia last month.

But his starting spot is under threat ahead of Friday's game with the return of Palermo forward Kyle Lafferty from injury.
