McAuley plays in Irish flop

GARETH McAuley did not relish his latest taste of international football, which came with Northern Ireland at the Faroe Islands yesterday.

GARETH McAuley did not relish his latest taste of international football, which came with Northern Ireland at the Faroe Islands this afternoon.

Ipswich Town centre-half McAuley played at right-back during the disappointing and rather embarrassing 1-1 away draw in a Euro 2012 qualifier.

McAuley, who has played every minute of every league match for Town so far this season, came close to scoring with a header that flew into the side-netting.

Meanwhile, the trio of Ronan Murray, Shane O’Connor and Reggie Lambe were on target for Town Reserves in their 3-3 draw at Southend United this afternoon.

It was another useful run-out for left-back O’Connor, on his comeback from a torn hamstring.
