Scare for Clingan

Norwich City midfielder Sammy Clingan suffered another injury scare last night as Northern Ireland were beaten in Belfast.

Clingan was in the wars and needed treatment in the dressing room following a clash of heads with Roland Guhasz after 41 minutes of the 2-0 friendly international defeat by Hungary.

The good news for City manager Glenn Roeder is that the midfielder returned to action bandaged up before the break - and went on to captain his country in the second half after goalkeeper Maik Taylor had been substituted.

Clingan will be desperate not to miss the Canaries' Championship trip to his former club, Nottingham Forest, on Saturday.
