Lafferty and Brunt back

Kyle Lafferty and Chris Brunt return to Northern Ireland's squad for next month's Euro 2012 qualifiers against Serbia and Estonia, along with veteran keeper Maik Taylor.

West Brom winger Brunt was suspended for the 4-0 win over the Faroe Islands earlier this month but returns along with Rangers forward Lafferty, who has now regained fitness following a hernia operation.

Millwall striker Josh McQuoid returns after withdrawing from the squad for that game with a thigh injury but Burnley's Martin Paterson is again missing.

Linfield's Peter Thompson, summoned to the squad to face the Faroes in the pair's absence, also misses out while Taylor, without a club after leaving Birmingham this summer, replaces Inverness' Jonny Tuffey in the only other change.

Boss Nigel Worthington will look to Celtic's Pat McCourt, who excelled against the Faroes in Brunt's absence, to play a starring role once again having stated following that game that "I'll have to pick a team pretty much around him''.

Worthington's side host Serbia at Windsor Park on September 2, a game closed to away fans after the crowd trouble which forced the abandonment of their game against Italy in October, and then travel to Tallinn on September 6.

Northern Ireland squad for Euro 2012 qualifiers against Serbia and Estonia on September 2 and 6:

Taylor (unattached), Camp (Nottingham Forest), Mannus (St Johnstone); J Evans (Manchester United), McGivern (Manchester City), Cathcart (Blackpool), McAuley (West Brom), Hughes (Fulham), Hodson (Watford), Baird (Fulham); McCann (Peterborough), McGinn (Celtic, on loan at Brentford), Gorman (Wolves), C Evans (Hull), Davis (Rangers), Clingan (Coventry), Brunt (West Brom), McCourt (Celtic); Feeney (Oldham), McQuoid (Millwall), Healy (Rangers), Ward (Derby), Lafferty (Rangers).
