Blackpool defender Craig Cathcart has withdrawn from Northern Ireland's Euro 2012 qualifier against the Faroe Islands on Tuesday after failing to recover from a back injury. Centre-half Cathcart will not travel to Toftir, Northern Ireland managed Nigel Worthington has confirmed. The 21-year-old, who moved to Blackpool from Manchester United this year, had already sat out Friday's 0-0 draw with Italy after suffering a back spasm in his club's 2-0 win at Liverpool. Northern Ireland are unbeaten in two games in qualifying.
