The Tartan Army are braced for another night of high emotion as Scotland seek to secure a World Cup play-off spot by defeating Moldova in Chisinau.

Exactly a year to the day since David Marshall’s penalty save in Serbia ended a long 23-year wait to qualify for a major tournament, Steve Clarke is looking to take a huge step toward reaching Qatar 2022.

Scotland will secure second place in a qualifying group for the first time since Euro 2004 if they get three points in Moldova.

Even if Scotland fail to win, they can still reach the play-offs on Friday. A draw would suffice if Israel don’t win their evening match against Austria in Klagenfurt.
