The two nations are already playing catch-up in Group C, having registered just a single point between them from their opening two matches.

Pointless Lithuania have lost each of their last six in all competitions; Valdas Ivanauskas’ side scoring just once during that span.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland boast only a single win in 90 minutes from their last 15 outings.

Ian Baraclough’s men have also been beaten four times in their five most recent away internationals.

That is something they must address to have any chance of securing a first appearance at the World Cup finals since 1986.

Shayne Lavery is the man in form for Northern Ireland; the Blackpool striker scoring two goals in as many starts for the Seasiders this term.

Only one side has found the net in four of the Irish’s last five outings, while Lithuania have won just once in six home games.
