Five of Stephen Robinson’s first team squad will be in international action over the coming days.
Chris Cadden and Allan Campbell are on Scotland Under 21 duty, as Scot Gemmill’s side continue their push for at least a play-off spot in qualification for the 2019 UEFA European Under 21 Championship.
Goal difference currently keeps the Scots in third place behind Ukraine in second, who the pair travel to face on Thursday.
A win in Kiev will set up a final game with England which, depending on results, could be a shootout for top spot or a potential play-off place.
Northern Ireland Under 21s are also in contention to reach the play-offs, as they face a double header away to Iceland on Thursday and then at home to Slovakia next Tuesday.
Liam Donnelly’s side are a point behind the Slovaks with two games to go, with Iceland sitting three points behind. All three teams can finish in second and claim a possible play-off spot, depending on results in other groups.
At senior level, Trevor Carson and Gaël Bigirimana are also in qualification action.
Carson’s Northern Ireland play two UEFA Nations League matches away from home on Friday and Monday.
The goalkeeper’s side are in Austria first, before heading south to take on Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Bosnia are the runaway leaders in the group, having won both of their matches so far. Northern Ireland and Austria have only played once, both against Bosnia.
Bigirimana meanwhile is in action in the qualifying stages for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with Burundi.
His nation have never reached the tournament before but have made a great start in their group, winning their first match and drawing the second against Gabon.
Group leaders Mali lie in wait on Friday in Bamako, before the two sides meet again in Burundi next Tuesday.
