Berbatov misses out

Last updated : 23 March 2009 By Paul Jennings
Bulgaria will have be without star striker Dimatar Berbatov for the crucial qualifier against Ireland on Saturday. He damaged his ankle against Fulham in the Red Devils 2-0 loss and he will now miss out Bulgaria's 2 matches against Ireland and Cyprus.

The news will come as a relief to the Irish management as they have lost fullback Steve Finnan for the tie. The match kick off is at 7.45 on Saturday night.
