Scotland v England tips – Scots can hold their own in Glasgow
Roy Hodgson and Gordon Strachan set to make changes for Tuesday’s clash
November 17th, 2014
Scotland have made a very satisfactory start to Euro 2016 qualifying, with seven points from four games played giving them a fighting chance of making it to France in eighteen months time.
Gordon Strachan will shuffle his pack after Friday’s 1-0 win against the Republic of Ireland for the visit of England, with Steven Fletcher certain not to be involved, while Craig Gordon could feature between the sticks and James Morrison is also ready to start.
Betfred go 11/4 about a win for the Scots and that looks plenty big enough considering that there will be a hostile atmosphere for England for this Auld Enemy clash which will also see Roy Hodgson make changes.
Ross Barkley and Saido Berahino are rumoured to be starting the game, with Danny Welbeck claiming that the players understand the importance of not losing to these opponents.
“Obviously it is only a friendly but we want to win every single game,” he said. “We can’t go in thinking we are going to do anything else than that.
“It is going to be a great atmosphere. I watched their game against the Republic of Ireland the other night and the atmosphere sounded unbelievable. I just can’t wait to get out there and taste it.”
England are a best price 6/5 although the absence of Joe Hart between the sticks and a lack of a midfield defensive general means that we should expect Scotland to get at least a draw from the game.
