Glentoran star Joely Andrews was on target in Northern Ireland's 3-1 World Cup qualification defeat in Austria.

Andrews was one of seven Danske Bank Women's Premiership stars who were involved in the match.

Carina Wenninger, Nicole Billa and Barbara Dunst were all on target for the hosts just after the break - scoring past Jacqueline Burns, who has left Glentoran to join Swedish club Hacken.

Her former Glens teammates Chloe McCarron and Lauren Wade both started the game, alongside Crusaders defender Julie Nelson and Cliftonville duo Marissa Callaghan and Abbie Magee - who has joined the Reds from Linfield.

Reds star Kirsty McGuinness and Glentoran's Andrews were second half subs, with the latter scoring a late consolation goal for the visitors - with a low shot finding the corner of the net.
