Scotland host the Faroe Islands at Hampden Park on Wednesday night, with manager Steve Clarke under the scanner following recent results.

Since qualifying for the European Championships in November, Scotland's form has dipped drastically. They have not won any of the four games that they have played since.

In this World Cup qualifying campaign, Scotland have two points from two games so far.

They secured a very creditable draw against Austria in the first game, twice coming back from behind to take a point from a 2-2 draw.

In the previous game that they played, Scotland drew 1-1 with Israel in Tel Aviv. Dor Peretz gave Israel the lead in the first half, but that lead only lasted 11 minutes into the second half, with Ryan Fraser equalizing for Scotland.

Faroe Islands had a few moments of hope and joy in their last game, when they took the lead against Austria. However, the Austrians scored three times to extinguish any hopes of a huge upset.
