Northern Ireland remain at the Group F summit following Monday night's Euro 2016 qualifiers.

They did so after a 1-1 draw with Hungary at Windsor Park.

Richard Guzmics gave the away side the lead just over a quarter of an hour from full time and things got even worse for Michael O'Neill's side in the 81st minute when Chris Baird was sent off.

It came after after Baird committed two yellow card worthy fouls in the space of a few seconds. The referee played advantage for Hungary after the first foul but then called a halt to proceedings when Baird hacked down an opposition player who was on the counter attack.

However, Kyle Lafferty came to the rescue of his side three minutes into injury time.
