LiveScotland 1 - 0 Slovakia RECAP: Lyndon Dykes gives Steve Clarke's men valuable win in Nations League
Scotland welcome Slovakia to Hampden park for the third fixture of their Uefa Nations League group.
Steve Clarke’s side will be on a high following the dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Israel on Thursday – following a drab performance – to set up Euro 2020 play-off final with Serbia next month. While that will be at the forefront of many fans’ minds, the Nations League and doing well is important to Scotland.
Not only will this evening allow for momentum to be built ahead of the trip to Serbia but there are also a number of other benefits, in terms of which pot Scotland find themselves in in future qualifying as well as providing a safety net for the 2022 World Cup qualification.
We will have all the action, reaction and analysis from Hampden Park throughout the night.

FT: Scotland 1 - 0 Slovakia
Steve Clarke’s men move on to seven points in the Nations League group.
McBurnie hits the bar
Brilliant play down the left by Fraser sees the Newcastle man send a teasing cross on to the head of McBurnie but his effort rattles the bar.
Good chance for Dykes
An great move down the flank, sweeping from McTominay into Fraser who flicked it into the path of O’Donnell. The wing-back cut it back for Dykes but is lofted effort dropped wide.
Fraser and O’Donnell link up down the right with the latter sending in a lovely cross for Dykes to volley home.
The midfielder leaves a sore one on Duda.

No shots on target.
John McGinn plays a great through ball for Lyndon Dykes but just as he was primed to shoot from a good position he’s denied by a great block.
Dykes in the book

This hasn’t been good
Big friendly vibes about this encounter so far.
Bero OFF, Duda ON
Yellow for Hamsik
The Slovakian talisman is punished for pulling back John McGinn after being spun.
