Northern Ireland Under-21s will aim for only their second win of the current European Championship qualifying campaign when they host Finland at the Ballymena Showgrounds on Friday night.
Friday’s match will be live on the BBC Sport Northern Ireland website.
Last month’s 2-0 away victory in Malta was Northern Ireland’s sole win in seven Group Eight qualifiers to date.
That was followed by a 1-0 home defeat by leaders Denmark – which was third loss of the campaign for the Irish.
Northern Ireland’s tally of six points leaves only Malta below them in the campaign as they sit 13 behind the Danes.
