Scotland take their attempts to make it into the play-offs for next winter’s World Cup in Qatar to the Faroe Islands on tonight.
Steve Clarke’s men secured a very late win over Israel at Hampden Park on Saturday so must complete the job with a win against the Faroes now and Moldova next time out.
A 4-0 victory in the reverse fixture at Hampden eight months ago is a positive sign, but the Scots can’t afford to be complacent as they look to qualify for a World Cup for the first time since 1998.
Scotland are currently second in Group E, behind only leaders Denmark, and are now four ahead of play-off spot rivals Israel.

Faroe Islands 10/1
The Faroes are one of the weakest teams in international football and Scotland really should be winning this one. 2-0 to the away side.
