    Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill looks set to retain Liam Boyce and Josh Magennis as his strikers in Saturday's World Cup qualifier in Azerbaijan.

    The duo impressed against New Zealand last weekend as Boyce scored his first international goal and O'Neill has hinted that they will start again.
