Carson survives the cull to earn second cap

JOSH Carson will win his second cap for a much-changed Northern Ireland side when they conclude their Carling Nations Cup tournament against Wales tomorrow night.

Ireland boss Nigel Worthington will make five changes from the side that were thrashed 5-0 by the Republic of Ireland but Carson, who made his debut in that game, will keep his place.

Jonny Tuffey, Colin Coates, Oliver Norwood, Robert Garrett and Niall McGinn will all start against the Welsh in a match Northern Ireland must win to avoid finishing bottom of the four-nations group.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm and will be shown on Sky Sports 1.
