England midfielder Steven Gerrard expects Gareth Barry to feel "hard done by" if he is dropped in favour of Frank Lampard for the Euro 2008 qualifiers against Estonia and Russia.

Barry stepped into the side when Lampard was injured last month and formed an impressive partnership with Gerrard in the Wembley encounters with Russia and Israel.

And the Liverpool skipper, who will captain his country in the absence of John Terry against Estonia, said: "Gareth was fantastic in both games and I´m sure he´ll feel hard done by if he was dropped. He was man of the match in those two games."
