Northern Ireland are hungry to deliver in derby, warns Caragh


Northern Ireland women midfielder Caragh Milligan is confident the team can hit back following their opening defeat to Norway and win their derby clash against Republic of Ireland at Mourneview Park tonight (kick-off 7.30pm).

Alfie Wylie's girls come into the World Cup qualifier off the back of a 4-1 defeat to Norway last week, but 20-year-old Milligan said: "It's a big derby and that adds a lot of flavour to the fixture. We've looked at things that went wrong and we know we're going to put them right against the Republic of Ireland."

The Republic's squad includes Sunderland's Stephanie Roche, who finished second in Fifa's Puskas Award world goal of the year competition in 2013.
