World Cup: Danes the top focus for content Clarke

Scotland head coach Steve Clarke wants to see his side embrace the challenge of facing Denmark, having secured a World Cup qualifying play-off spot.

Clarke was speaking after seeing his side win 2-0 in Moldova to ensure that they will finish in second place in Group F, with his side 9/4 to round off their campaign with a Hampden victory over the Danes on Monday evening - while the draw can be backed at 23/10.

Gordon completes the job

Goals from Nathan Patterson and Che Adams gave the Scots all three points in Chisinau on Friday evening, with a late Craig Gordon penalty save topping off a fine evening for Clarke and his squad, who have now won five games in a row.

However, they may well need to avoid defeat on Monday to secure a seeding and a home tie in the semi-finals of the play-offs, meaning that there is plenty resting on the showdown with the Euro 2020 semi-finalists.

Clarke told Sky Sports: "Now we have a game against Denmark and all our focus goes to that.

"We said we wanted to get to the November games being competitive, with a chance of qualifying for the World Cup, so we’re still on track for that.

"We recognise the Danes have been the best team in the group, but with a full house at Hampden we have the chance to hopefully do ourselves justice in what should be a cracker of a match."

Denmark won 2-0 in Copenhagen when the two sides met back at the beginning of September, although Scotland took the honours in both of the previous meetings of the two teams.
