Tyre / Inner tube caompatibility

Hi to all

Looking to replace the current tube & tyres of my 26" MTB with the following specs

Tyre 26 x 1.95 (50-559)
Tube 26 x 1.75 / 2.125 (schrader)

Will it be Ok for me to go for 26 x 1.9 - 2.1 Schraeder tube (found a cheap one for 2.99) ?

Tubes are flexible. You can use ones that aren't quite the right size, they'll just take a little more effort to get into the tyre straight.
