Completing the trio is Alfie McCalmont, who is in the Northern Ireland U21 camp as they play Lithuania and Malta.

A rearranged date for the Wigan game will be announced in due course.

It is the third Morecambe game this season to have been called off as a result of international call-ups.

The first was the trip to Crewe Alexandra in early September before Stephen Robinson’s players won the rearranged fixture later that month.

Earlier this month, the home match against Cambridge United was also postponed with the game now being played next Tuesday, November 2 (7.45pm).
