Brunt Impresses at Windsor Park

Brunt Impresses at Windsor Park

In-form Wednesday winger Chris Brunt impressed the Northern Irish faithful at Windsor Park as he played the full 90 minutes for Lawrie Sanchez in their 0-0 draw with Wales on Tuesday night.

Brunt, currently top scorer with Wednesday with nine goals this season, got his chance in the side following a number of injuries to key players - but he will give his manager a huge selection headache following an impressive performance against the Welsh.

The game itself was one to forget for more on a freezing cold night in Belfast - but the former Middlesbrough youth product had the better chances for the hosts and was labelled as the 'oustanding player' on the night by BBC Radio Five Live pundits.

Brunt had the best chance of the first-half as he picked up a loose ball inside the Welsh half and drove towards Danny Coyne's goal before the stopper tipped his right-footed effort around the post for a corner.

The second half was a more entertaining affair, despite a high number of changes from both sides, with the Owls top-scorer slicing an effort just wide of the goal from the edge of the box while also causing havoc in the Wales defence with a number of dangerous crosses.

Wednesday fans will be hoping the tricky winger can reproduce his form as he returns to action with the Owls on Saturday for the trip to Burnley (kick-off 3pm).

Northern Ireland: Taylor, Duff, Craigan, Hughes, Capaldi, Gillespie, Davis, Clingan, Brunt, Lafferty, Sproule. Subs: Ingham, McCann, Shiels, Thompson, Webb.

Wales: Coyne, Duffy, Evans, Collins, Nyatanga, Davies, Koumas, Robinson, Parry, Vaughan, Bellamy. Subs: Jones, Bale, Morgan, Ricketts, Valentine, Crofts, Cotterill, Easter, Llewellyn.
