Evans sidelined by ankle injury

Northern Ireland were dealt another blow yesterday when Manchester United defender Jonny Evans became the fourth player to withdraw from Nigel Worthington's squad with an ankle injury. Aaron Hughes (groin) was first to pull out of tomorrow's Euro 2012 qualifier against Estonia and Tuesday's game with Italy, followed by Josh McQuoid (virus) and Jamie Ward (hamstring). PA
