STEVE CLARKE and his Scotland side do battle at Hampden for the second time in less than a week when they face off against the Republic of Ireland tomorrow.

The Tartan Army come into the tie full of confidence after Wednesday night’s resounding 3-0 victory over Ukraine at Hampden, making up for June’s World Cup Play-Off heartache.

They’ll be out for revenge for a second time when Steven Kenny’s side come to Glasgow as they look for redemption after their Aviva Stadium nightmare where the Irish ran out 3-0 winners in Dublin.

A positive result of any kind for Scotland would set up a grandstand finish when they travel to Krakow on Tuesday in their final Nations League group game against Ukraine to see who will seal promotion to the Group A pots.

And they’ll be keen to back up Wednesday night’s performance to continue their unbeaten home run in the competition.

Team News

Steve Clarke will have been left grimacing despite being on the right end of a 3-0 scoreline on Wednesday night.

That’s because he was left nursing the loss of influential right-back Nathan Patterson who was forced off through injury midway through the first half.

He along with David Turnbull returned to Everton and Celtic after the game due to picking up injuries.

They were replaced by Hellas Verona wing-back Josh Doig and St Mirren centre-back Declan Gallacher.

Doig played in Thursday’s U21 victory over Northern Ireland in Belfast.

Gallacher received his first call-up since the European Championships last summer.

Clarke was already without the likes of Jon McLaughlin, Grant Hanley and Jacob Brown who all returned to their club’s at the beginning of the week.

Ireland boss Stephen Kenny has been able to call upon his three goalscorers from the reverse fixtures in Dublin as Troy Parrot, Alan Browne and Michael Obafemi all travelled to Glasgow for the tie.

Former Celtic defender Shane Duffy was also in the travelling party.
