Manchester City goalkeeper Karen Bardsley and Manchester United midfielder Katie Zelem have been called up for England Women's training camp.
The duo will replace Birmingham City's Hannah Hampton and Bardsley's Manchester City team-mates Chloe Kelly and Alex Greenwood after their withdrawals from the 10-day training camp.
Bardsley, who returns to the international set-up, and Zelem, who is yet to make her senior England debut, have joined up with Phil Neville's Lionesses squad at St. George's Park.
The squad will play two in-house training fixtures across the November camp with the first to be played at Stoke City's Stadium on Friday 27 November.
England will not play a competitive match during the camp, with their planned fixture against Norway having been called off due to coronavirus travel restrictions.
Zelem's United team-mate Lauren James was included for the first time in the original 29-player squad, while uncapped duo Lotte Wubben-Moy and Rinsola Babajide, of Arsenal and Liverpool respectively, were called up once more after impressing during September's training camp.
James, who only turned 19 in September, has impressed for United in the Women's Super League, as Neville once more selected a youthful group of players.
Although Neville will be replaced by Sarina Wiegman as head coach, he is working towards preparing the players for the 2022 European Championships.
