Scotland seek rare victory double against Malta after seeing off Lithuania

Brown was visibly fuming during Scotland's 2-0 win over Malta in 2018 World Cup qualifying on Monday night, and accused the centre-back of spitting at him.

At long last Scotland are vital and in contention in Group F of these World Cup qualifiers.

Scotland captain Scott Brown says the squad all know how big the game is after victory over Malta coupled with England beating Slovakia. "He put his hand up to apologise but I managed to keep my head". The main thing was getting the three points.

Gordon Strachan's side need to win all their remaining games if they are to have any realistic chance of getting to the 2018 tournament in Russian Federation after a disappointing start to the campaign.

"The players always believed, even after a poor start, that we could end up competing in this group".

As the set wore on, Muguruza became unsure off the forehand side, and Kvitova took advantage of that. Kvitova has won four of her previous five matches against Williams.

Strachan was pleased with his side's efforts in the Malta goalmouth, adding: "The chances we made, we made a lot of chances - 25 attempts, that's not bad, plus the 23 against Lithuania, that's almost 50 attempts at goals".

Scotland, together with Slovenia - who beat Lithuania - are now just one point behind Slovakia with two games to go.

England, Scotland and Northern Ireland all won on a great night for the home nations, with Michael O'Neill's men all but sealing a playoff place in Group C and Gareth Southgate's side needing only two points to win Group F. We knew we had to win our game and then just hope they gave us a helping hand.

"The Slovakia game will be massive now and hopefully the fans come out and support us next month". "It's been a good few days for the players. We're not going to wipe the floor with teams".

But Strachan admitted suspension fears hampered his side's ability to reproduce their energetic Lithuania display against Malta. I think, and in the 4th game in the history of the teams the success will be celebrated by the Scots. The game should be filled with goals but should only come from the home teams as Scotland should walk away with a comfortable result after the 90 minutes. "It had to be a bit more low tempo to make sure the guys got through that so that's a bonus as well".
