Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington has called uncapped midfielders Michael Gault and Michael O´Connor into his 22-man squad for next week´s home friendly against Georgia.

Goalkeeper Roy Carroll, who recently joined Derby from Rangers, returns as cover for Birmingham´s Maik Taylor while Cardiff striker Warren Feeney and Hull´s Stuart Elliott, currently on loan at Doncaster, are back from injury.

Gault, 24, wins a first call-up after an outstanding season for Carnegie Premier League champions Linfield, for whom he has played more than 200 games.
