O'Neill weighing up striking options

In the absence of the suspended Kyle Lafferty, Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill says he will weigh up the striking options available to him for the crucial Euro 2016 qualifier against Greece at Windsor Park on 8 October.

"Liam Boyce, Billy McKay and Josh Magennis are all scoring goals for their clubs in the Scottish Premiership, while Jamie Ward can play in a more attacking role too. I have plenty to think about," said O'Neill.

Meanwhile the Northern Ireland boss dismissed speculation linking him with the vacant managerial position at Dundee United.

When asked about possibly extending his Northern Ireland contract beyond the Euro 2016 finals, O'Neill responded: "It's something I have considered. There's still a lot of work to do - it's something I would give serious thought to."
