Scotland team to play Denmark: Is this Steve Clarke's starting XI for World Cup qualifier?
Scotland take on Denmark in Copenhagen on Wednesday night in a key World Cup qualifier.
National team manager Steve Clarke doesn’t have his problems to seek ahead of the game with several players ruled out due to a combination of injury and unavailability due to Covid-19 protocols.
Stuart Armstrong, Greg Taylor and James Forrest were all forced to pull out of the squad shortly after it was announced thanks to injury.
Further blows came this weekend with the news John McGinn and Nathan Patterson would be missing due to government restrictions.
The loss of Patterson and Forrest, two options at right wing-back, were further exacerbated when it was revealed Stephen O’Donnell was unable to travel for this match.
Then, just to top things off, Kevin Nisbet was ruled out with a knock, which means there will be no natural forward on the bench if Clarke decides to start two up top.
