Fellow Wigan defender Stubbs, 19, signed on an initial one-month loan in December month and impressed alongside Jordan Tunnicliffe, helping the Coasters to two clean sheets in four appearances.

Smith, 20, has become a real fans favourite at the club following a string of dazzling displays.

The pacy winger has netted six goals in 35 appearances in all competitions – including two in his last four starts – and has missed just one league game this season.
