Ward out of qualifiers

Derby forward Jamie Ward has been ruled out of Northern Ireland's Euro 2012 qualifiers against Serbia and Estonia with a hamstring injury, the Irish Football Association have confirmed.

The 25-year-old made his international debut when he came off the bench towards the end of the 4-0 home victory over the Faroe Islands in Belfast earlier this month.

Nigel Worthington's side host Serbia at Windsor Park on Friday - a game closed to away fans after the crowd trouble which forced the abandonment of their game against Italy in October - and then travel to Tallinn next Tuesday.
