Jamie Ward has withdrawn from the Northern Ireland squad to face Turkey tomorrow due to a foot injury.

The Derby and former Sheffield United forward played a key role in the Rams’ 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday last Saturday but has suffered a bruised foot and did not fly out with the rest of Michael O’Neill’s squad on Tuesday.
