Chris Baird has handed Northern Ireland a boost by coming through training on Monday.

The Southampton defender was rated doubtful for Wednesday's clash with Austria as he has been struggling with a thigh problem.

Baird, who missed the weekend defeat to Wales through suspension, came through Monday's run-out with no problems and should make the trip to Vienna.

Birmingham midfielder Damien Johnson was missing from training with a groin injury, but he is expected to be fit for Wednesday.

Grant McCann has been drafted into the squad to replace the suspended Tony Capaldi.
