Steven Caldwell, originally named in George Burley’s squad withdrew due to a groin injury after seeing the Scotland medical team on Monday this week but both Graham Alexander and Steven Fletcher were also called-up and have now been named in the starting eleven.

Alexander will once more play in the holding midfield role.

After Scotland’s 4-0 defeat to Norway in Oslo last month, James McFadden and Steven Fletcher replace Kris Commons and the injured Ross McCormack in attack. The pair will support Miller up front.
