Rovers midfielder Corry Evans could play his part in three big games for Northern Ireland later this month.

Evans, who will link up with the Green and White Army following Saturday's Sky Bet Championship match against Queens Park Rangers at Ewood Park.

The 30-year-old will be looking to add to his 63 caps when his country get set for a crunch Euro 2020 Play-Off Final against Slovakia in Belfast on Thursday 12th November.

A win will book Northern Ireland's spot at the finals in the summer and will see them placed in Group E alongside Spain, Sweden and Poland.

Attentions will turn to the UEFA Nations League soon after, with a double-header against Austria in Vienna on Sunday 15th November and then Romania in Belfast on Wednesday 18th November 2020.
