Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans faces scan on groin injury

Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans will have a scan on a groin injury on Sunday.

The 29-year-old centre-half had to be withdrawn during the first half of West Brom's 1-0 defeat at Southampton on Saturday evening.

Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill will be sweating on the results of the scan with the first leg of their World Cup play-off against Switzerland just 19 days away.

West Brom manager Tony Pulis said: " Jonny's (injury is his) groin, so we're not sure until we scan it tomorrow.

"Obviously everyone in Northern Ireland will be a little bit concerned about Jonny, and we are a little bit concerned."

Northern Ireland face the Swiss in Belfast on November 9 with the away leg three days later.
