Daniel Ballard and George Saville have been called up by Northern Ireland for October's two 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.

The pair will depart The Lions after Saturday's Sky Bet Championship match against Barnsley at Oakwell to train with the Green and White Army, with the first fixture coming on Saturday 9th October as Northern Ireland travel to Switzerland (kick-off 7.45pm).

Ian Baraclough's outfit will then make the journey to Bulgaria (Tuesday 12th October, kick-off 7.45pm) before Ballard and Saville return to SE16 ahead of the visit of Luton Town on Saturday 16th October (kick-off 3pm).

Northern Ireland currently sit third in Group C of the European section of qualifying, behind Italy and Switzerland but in front of Bulgaria and Lithuania.
