Steve Clarke has made five changes to his Scotland team that will face a makeshift Czech Republic side on Monday evening.

The teams meet in their Nations League match after a busy three days that initially saw the Czechs announce that the game was cancelled after a coronavirus outbreak in their camp.

Following discussions with UEFA, the Czech FA agreed to play the game rather than forfeit, but they picked a new squad with the previous selection of international players being quarantined.

The new group of players were picked solely from the domestic league and only two players have previously been capped before.

The 36-year-old Sigma Olomouc defender Roman Hubnik captains a side who have had little time together to prepare for the match at the Ander Stadium.

Clarke is hoping to see his side take three points after the disappointment of a draw with Israel on Friday and he has rotated his squad. Kieran Tierney, James Forrest, John McGinn, Ryan Jack and Callum McGregor all drop to the bench.

David Marshal continues in goal with captain Andy Robertson at left back. Scott McKenna partners Liam Cooper in the centre of defence with Liam Palmer at right back.

Scott McTominay, and John Fleck are in the centre of midfield while Stuart Armstrong, Kenny McLean and Ryan Christie provide support for striker Lyndon Dykes, who keeps his place after making his debut against Israel.
