O'Neill has faith in NI attacking options

Michael O'Neill is confident Northern Ireland have enough attacking options to triumph in Friday night's World Cup qualifier against Azerbaijan.

The manager has lost forward Jamie Ward [fractured wrist] and midfielder Stuart Dallas [calf] to injury and striker Conor Washington is a major doubt with a groin problem.

O'Neill said it will be a blow if Washington loses his fitness battle for the Group C match at Windsor Park, but has faith in the offensive quality of Liam Boyce, Kyle Lafferty, Josh Magennis and Will Grigg.
