Fletcher desperate to end years of Scotland heartache

Slovakia focus ahead of their World Cup qualifier with Scotland

Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson is ready to play through injury in Scotland's final World Cup qualifying match against Slovenia on Sunday (8 October) in the hope of helping his country secure a play-off place. 'International matches are always hard and this one away from home will be no different. "We were patient. It doesn't matter how you get there as long as you get there in the end. We've got our fate in our own hands".

"We also know we are a good team and we go right to the end. But as soon as you open your eyes in the morning your body knows there's a game on".

With only three days between the fixtures, Strachan may give McGregor his chance in the Slovenian capital but it looks unlikely.

Scotland, which now has 13 points from its past five games, moves up to second in the table.

Scotland are now seventh out of nine teams, with eleven points.

He said: "There has been too many coincidences since I landed in Scotland and I am too old to believe in coincidences". 'We didn't listen to all the negative things about us not getting to the play-offs.

However, with two minutes of regulation time remaining a cross from another substitute, Ikechi Anya, was turned into his own goal by Slovakia captain Martin Skrtel under pressure from Martin.

"I am sure the Tartan Army will be over in great numbers and if we can perform like we have done in the last couple of games then it will hopefully get us through the group". "It would have been a huge disappointment if we didn't and that was some performance", Strachan said, after watching the visitors being reduced to 10 men in the 23rd minute when Robert Mak was shown a second yellow card for simulation. 'But there's more to it than that. We're in a good place at the minute.

On 59 minutes Gordon was required again to keep it level and keep alive World Cup dreams.

'The goal was massive.

Scotland played for nearly 70 minutes against 10 men and their pressure eventually told.

The 1-0 victory means another three points on Sunday in Ljubljana will put Scotland second in the table and in prime position to reach their first play-off since 2003 as the road to Russian Federation intensifies.

'We kept knocking down the door and finally got the goal.
