Northern Ireland welcome Kosovo to Belfast on Saturday, still seeking their first victory in the Nations League.
Ian Baraclough and his team would have imagined their chances when they were drawn alongside Greece, Cyprus and this weekend’s opponents in Group C3, but things didn’t go to plan in June .
Narrow defeats to Greece and Kosovo left them third in the table and under real threat of having to drop it in a relegation play-off with their League C place on the line.
Baraclough insisted his side will do all they can to avoid that fate, but it will likely see them picking up their first victory in the competition’s history – having failed to get three points in 14 attempts so far. now.
Goals from Shayne Lavery and Dan Ballard couldn’t help them back into the game at the Stadiumi Fadil Vokrri in June, but the hosts on Saturday will know they have the players to beat Kosovo, it’s just a matter of find the performance of the day and smash their Nations. League Hoodoo.

Our prediction: Northern Ireland – Kosovo
Can Northern Ireland finally end their Nations League woes and claim a win that could keep them in League C?
That’s the question ahead of Saturday’s match in Belfast and the pressure is mounting as their final game sees them face Greece, who top the table with four wins from four.
Dion Charles has told Baraclough he will get in goal if he starts and the coach might just give him the chance to keep that promise against Kosovo.
Northern Ireland have seen how dangerous the visitors can be, but the hosts’ squad look healthier than they have in a while. It could be their day.
