Charles thought he had made the breakthrough on 56 minutes when he latched on to George Saville's through ball, but he was ruled out for a foul.

When Fidan Aliti hooked over the bar from close range, there was another lucky escape.
Kosovo had a chance to break the stalemate when Muslija's low free-kick was beaten away by Peacock- Farrell, but he missed the target.
Charles looked to add some spark to Northern Ireland's attack. Minutes later another low effort was held by the Kosovan goalkeeper, after theBolton forward ran inside Betim Fazliji and his low effort was parried away by Muric.
The half-time whistle was met by a few boos around Windsor Park, but Northern Ireland's late show spared a repeat at full time.
The result leaves Northern Ireland third in League C Group Two and in a strong position to avoid a play-off if they beat Greece on Tuesday.
