In search of their fourth win on the trot in Group F of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers, Scotland take a trip to the Tórsvøllur Stadium to face Faroe Islands on Tuesday.

The hosts find themselves in fifth place after an underwhelming campaign and will be looking to upset the visitors and pick up a morale-boosting win.

Faroe Islands failed to pick up their first successive win since October 2020 as they fell to a 2-0 defeat against Austria last Saturday.

This followed a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Moldova back in September to end their run of two straight losses.

With just four points from seven games, Faroe Islands are currently second-bottom in Group F, three points above last-placed Moldova.

Scotland, on the other hand, continued their fine string of performances as they claimed a thrilling 3-2 win over Israel last time out.

Prior to that, Steve Clarke’s men claimed a 1-0 win over Moldova on 4 September, before seeing off Austria by the same scoreline.

With 14 points from seven games, Scotland are currently second in the group standings, four points ahead of third-placed Israel.
