Wigan Athletic forwards Will Grigg and Billy Mckay (currently on loan at Dundee United) have been named in Michael O'Neill's 26-man Northern Ireland squad for their final two UEFA European Championships 2016 qualifiers in October.

The pair were named in the previous squad for September's internationals, but were unused substitutes on both occasions.

Northern Ireland will Group F's bottom nation Greece on Thursday 8 October at Windsor Park, before a trip to fourth place Finland on Sunday 11 October.

Grigg and Mckay's side currently top Group F on 17 points, knowing that a victory against Greece would see them qualify for next summer's tournament in France.  Alternatively qualification can also be achieved if they avoid defeat in their first fixture, and Hungary fail to beat Faroe Islands.
