Lees has made a quicker-than-expected recovery from an eye injury sustained in the recent draw at Brighton and came off the substitutes' bench in Saturday's 6-1 home defeat to Watford.

The 21-year-old was charged by Serbian police for his part in a mass brawl at the end of his last appearance for Stuart Pearce's side, a 1-0 win in Krusevac last month which clinched qualification for next summer's European Under-21 Championships.

The Young Lions' clash with Northern Ireland at Blackpool's Bloomfield Road will be the first clash between the two countries at Under-21 level.
