Northern Ireland held by Slovenia

Published Add your comment

Northern Ireland saw their Euro 2012 qualifying hopes plummet for the second time in five days as they mustered only a goalless draw against Group C rivals Slovenia.

After defeat in Serbia on Friday night, a stalemate at Windsor Park leaves their prospects in dire straits despite having lost only one of their five games.

Chris Brunt was almost the hero for his side but the West Brom man fell agonisingly short of of converting Corry Evans' cross in the 80th minute.
