The Scotland team will be looking for an encouraging result today against the Czechs
in Prague after a decent but modest start in their first 2 matches with a slender 2-1 defeating of minnows Liechtenstein and a goalless draw against Lithuania. If Craig Levein's side could win in Prague today it could launch a real charge towards the european championships in Poland and Ukraine in 2012. That outcome is looking more promising when you examine the Czech team's only match in the qualifiers thus far being a shock 1-0 defeat to a side which is usually a league below them in class, in Lithuania. This puts the Czechs under the kosh and they will need to turn over the Scots today if they want to be the main threat to Spain's charge in Group I of qualifying. More encouraging for Scotland is that they beat the Czechs in a friendly game earlier this year, 1-0 with a goal from midfielder Scott Brown.

Czech team news sees former Liverpool striker Milan Baros unable to feature because of a thigh problem. Also another forward in Martin Fenin has to also sit it out through injury so Lukas Magera, Vaclav Kadlec or Roman Bednar may be summoned to deputise for the players. Trusted hands Petr Cech or Chelsea and Tomas Rosicky or Arsenal, are available for selection as are Jan Polak and Jaroslav Plasil who are considered Linchpins by the Czech boss Bilek and he will be hoping these players can produce the magic that's needed to dispatch the Scots from Prague without any points.

For the Scotland team, big changes see favourite Kenny Miller dropped in favour of QPR's Jamie Mackie who gets his first international cap. Allan McGregor has overcome a thigh injury to keep goal and Alan Hutton and Steven Whittaker have been given the all clear to feature in the full back spots if chosen. David Weir and Stephen McManus will maintain the central defence and players Darren Fletcher, Gary Caldwell, Graham Dorrans, James Morrison and Steven Naismith are all available to play. Boss Craig Levein may opt for a 4-2-2-2 formation with these players and this news was delivered earlier in the week.
