Editor's Viewpoint: Let's play it safe

Published 24/03/2011

It is the mark of true football fans that they follow their team no matter what.

That is never truer than in the case of the 2-plus Northern Ireland fans who make the trek to Serbia for tomorrow night's crucial European Championship qualifier. That it is hostile territory goes without saying since home fans have been banned following riots at a match against Italy. We hope the promised security for the travelling supporters is delivered. Getting home without any trouble would be a great result.
