Scotland host Ukraine on Friday, November 26 at Hampden, before travelling to face Spain at the Estadio de La Cartuja in Seville on Tuesday, November 30.

After missing the memorable last gasp victory over Hungary, Manchester United pair Martha Thomas and Kirsty Smith have returned from injury for the double-header.

Scotland currently lie joint top of the table with Spain on nine points. Ukraine have played one game less and have three points thus far.

The squad has a consistent feel to it with Rachel Corsie again skippering the side following her dramatic late winner against Hungary at Hampden last month.

Christie Murray is also included, after battling back from a recent injury. This is the first time the Birmingham City player will link up again with Pedro Martinez Losa having worked under him at Arsenal previously.
