City star suffers NI heartache

10 September 2009 02:25
Clingan and his team-mates went into the game against the Group Three leaders in second place themselves, but the defeat at Windsor Park has seen Slovenia leapfrog them into a possible play-off place. Northern Ireland remain level on points with Slovenia but their eastern European counterparts have a game in hand, with Slovakia now all but out of sight. Elsewhere, Aron Gunnarsson was not involved in Iceland's 3-1 friendly triumph over Georgia, meaning he should be fresh for Saturday's clash against Bristol City. It all comes after Keiren Westwood started in goal for the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday night in their 1-0 friendly triumph over South Africa, with Leon Best coming on as a 59th-minute substitute.
