After featuring only once for his country at Euro 2016 in their first game against Poland, McLaughlin has regained his place in Michael O’neil’s team and scored his first international goal in the World Cup qualifier game against Azerbaijan last month.

Being Town’s first full international, McClaughlin was named the player’s player of the season for 2013/2014 in his second league campaign having joined The Cod Army side from Preston North End in 2012.

Fleetwood Town continued their fine run in the English third tier in last weekend’s 3-1 win over rivals Bristol Rovers to make it 13 games without a loss.
