O'Neill's men face Estonia on March 21 before taking on Belarus on March 24 with both games at the National Stadium at Windsor Park.

And the manager will see how keepers Michael McGovern, Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Conor Hazard train before making a decision.

Peacock-Farrell had been first choice but the keeper has been playing for his club side Leeds United in recent weeks.
