Bailey Peacock-Farrell deserved a big share of the credit for Northern Ireland’s crucial come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Kosovo on Saturday but still heard manager Ian Baraclough suggest he may need to leave Burnley this winter to keep his place in the side.

Late goalscorers Josh Magennis and Gavin Whyte took the headlines as Northern Ireland struck twice in the last 10 minutes at Windsor Park to finally end their winless Nations League record at the 15th attempt, a vital three points in the relegation fight as Cyprus later beat Greece.

But Magennis’ stoppage-time header would have been meaningless were it not for some crucial saves from Peacock-Farrell – who had denied Vedat Muriqi his second of the night moments before Whyte’s 82nd-minute equaliser.

“You don’t always get the glory but I think it was such a short time between the save and the goal I might sneak in there and get a little bit of credit,” Peacock-Farrell said.
