Steve Clarke talks to Premier Sports. “It’s always nice to play here, especially when you’ve got a full house. We’ve had some great nights here. Obviously a disappointing one in the summer, but tonight is about putting that right. We have to be mindful of the fact we had a good World Cup campaign. The disappointment was not finishing it off in the play-offs and getting to the World Cup. What we want to do now is get back to what we were good at before: an energetic team that creates chances and gets the crowd excited. Both teams are slightly different to the summer, but I’m sure it’ll be a good match. We’re going to have to be much better to get a result.”

Scotland coach Steve Clarke makes three changes to the starting XI named for the 4-1 victory in Armenia back in June. Kieran Tierney, Scott McKenna and Ryan Christie are in; they replace Grant Hanley, Greg Taylor and Billy Gilmour.

There’s no Oleksandr Zinchenko for Ukraine. The Arsenal and former Manchester City utility man is out with a calf problem. Mykhailo Mudryk, who scored for Shakhtar Donetsk against Celtic in the Champions League last week, will patrol the left flank.

Scotland: Gordon, Patterson, McTominay, Hendry, McKenna, Tierney, Armstrong, McGinn, McGregor, Christie, Adams.
Subs: Kelly, McCrorie, Taylor, Porteous, Dykes, Gilmour, Ralston, Fraser, Jack, Hickey, McLean.

Subs: Lunin, Riznyk, Kryvtsov, Sydorchuk, Yaremchuk, Kacharaba, Ihnatenko, Tsygankov, Mykolenko, Tymchyk, Zubkov.

Preamble

The last time these two countries met, three months and three weeks ago, this happened …

… after which Scotland embarked on their Nations League Group B1 campaign, home and away wins over Armenia sandwiching a 3-0 humping by the Republic of Ireland in Dublin. Steve Clarke’s team really need a payback victory over Ukraine tonight, if they’re to retain hope of winning the group, with the visit of Ireland and a trip to face the Ukrainians on neutral soil to come during this international break. Kick off at Hampden is 7.45pm BST. It’s on!
