Red Devils defender Dumbuya has been selected in Sierra Leone's squad to face Tunisia this month, meaning the March 19 clash has been moved to the final week of the season on Tuesday, April 23 and will kick off at 7:45pm.

A club usually requires three players to be called up for a fixture to be rescheduled but a Football League rule states that if a game is rearranged into an international window - as was the case with North End's proposed maiden visit to the Broadfield Stadium - one player being called up can allow the club with that player to ask for a rearrangement.
