Peacock-Farrell to face Cheltenham … Berahino ruled out

Bailey Peacock-Farrell will now be available for our home game with Cheltenham Town at Hillsborough on Saturday … but Saido Berahino misses out as he has been called up by Burundi.

The keeper was expected to be on international duty for Northern Ireland after he was selected for their upcoming friendlies against Luxembourg on Friday and Hungary at Windsor Park on the following Tuesday.

Joe Wildsmith was set to deputise on Saturday but Peacock-Farrell will now not join up with his international team-mates until after our game with Cheltenham.

Meanwhile, Berahino has been named in the Burundi squad for their friendlies against Bahrain and Liberia.

Burundi travel to the Sheikh Ali bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Stadium to face Bahrain on Saturday and then go to Turkey to take on Liberia three days later, ruling the striker out of our home game against the Robins.
