Scotland manager Steve Clarke says his side are looking to keep up the good work after announcing his squad for their World Cup qualifiers with Moldova and Denmark.

Four wins on the spin in qualifying means the Scots are now 9/2 to fail to finish inside the top two in Group F.

Late strikes crucial

Last-gasp wins over both Austria and Israel have put the Scots in a strong position in second place behind Denmark.

And a victory 12th November against Moldova will secure a place for Scotland in the play-offs for the World Cup finals in Qatar.

Stoke City forward Jacob Brown has been named in the squad for the first time ahead of the double header, while St Johnstone keeper Zander Clark has also been named in the 25-man group.

Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney has been included in the squad, despite missing out on the Gunners' last three games due to injury.

Head coach Clarke is looking forward to the upcoming encounters and wants his side to finish the job they started by sealing that World Cup play-off spot.

Clarke desperate for play-off spot

"We said a little while ago we wanted to be involved in the fight for first or second place right to the death," Clarke told the SFA website.

"Last two games of the group and we're right involved, so we'll try and keep up the good work and make sure we finish with as many points as we can and make sure that points total is enough to take us to the play-offs in March."

Craig Gordon, Zander Clark, Jon McLaughlin.
Defenders: Liam Cooper, Grant Hanley, Jack Hendry, Scott McKenna, Stephen O'Donnell, Nathan Patterson, Andy Roberston, Kieran Tierney.
Midfielders: Stuart Armstrong, Lewis Ferguson, Billy Gilmour, John McGinn, Callum McGregor, Kenny McLean, Scott McTominay, David Turnbull.
Forwards: Che Adams, Jacob Brown, Ryan Christie, Lyndon Dykes, Ryan Fraser, Kevin Nisbet.
