Last-gasp Skrtel own gives Scotland hope

Slovakia focus ahead of their World Cup qualifier with Scotland

Scotland vs Slovakia World Cup Qualifying UEFA

Darren Fletcher was quick to remind his Scotland teammates that only half of their job was complete.

Scotland will seal a place in the World Cup play-offs with victory over Slovenia on Sunday after their hopes of qualification were kept alive by a dramatic late 1-0 win over 10-man Slovakia.

Scotland looked to make their man-advantage count, but, apart from a curling Griffiths attempt which was stopped by Dubravka, the hosts struggled to create clear-cut chances before the interval.

Stoke City midfielder Fletcher, who stood in as captain in Scott Brown's absence, has experienced his fair share of agonising near misses across his 79 caps.

Fletcher could be heard telling the Scotland bench: "I think my ear's hanging off".

Griffiths hit the bar with a 25-yard free-kick after 73 minutes before Dubravka made another stunning save, this time from James Morrison. Griffiths played in Anya, whose cross was bundled into the goal by a sliding Skrtel, who was under pressure from Martin.

The Scots kept their hopes of qualifying for next summer's showpiece event in Russian Federation alive with a last gasp win over Slovakia on Thursday and the Reds left-back is not willing to sit out of the game despite injuring his wrist.

Slovakia head coach Jan Kozak has claimed his side were subjected to underhand tactics during their unsuccessful trip to Scotland.

"Their goalkeeper was fantastic and the crossbar came in handy for them too". When the goal went in, there would have been a lot of happy people on this island, but over in Glasgow Hampden Park was rocking.

"We have gained real momentum over the last few months with the performances and results we have had", the Derby forward said.

Slovakia were reduced to 10 men when Robert Mak was sent off in the 23rd minute after receiving a second yellow for simulation. "He was magnificent. And the crossbar was good as well".

Accordingly, it all comes down to Scotland's trip to Slovenia on October 8.

Slovenia may be in fourth spot, three points behind their visitors this weekend, but they have not conceded a single goal at home during their qualifying campaign.
