Ipswich defender Gareth McAuley has been ruled out of Northern Ireland's friendly against Montenegro on Wednesday.

McAuley suffered a back injury helping his club defeat Middlesbrough yesterday at the Riverside Stadium.

Captain Aaron Hughes is doubtful for the match in Podgorica because of an Achilles problem. The Fulham defender is being assessed by the medical team with the squad due to depart on Monday.
