Scotland head coach Steve Clarke believes that Scotland must finish the job to secure a place in the World Cup qualifying playoffs. They travel to Moldova knowing that another win would be enough to seal a place in the hat for the play-off draw. Scotland beat the Moldovans by the solitary goal in the reverse leg thanks to a Landon Dykes tap in. They missed a host of chances that day and Clarke hopes that they can be more clinical this time around.
“We always looked at the November games and thought if we can get there and still be involved in the process for qualification, that’s what we want to do.” Scotland boss Steve Clarke said. “We’ve managed to achieve that. Now it’s about finishing the job, making sure we get the points required to get that playoff place and hopefully go into the playoffs in a really good run of form.”
“The lads know they are going to be difficult to break down,” he added. “We only managed one goal past them at Hampden. If you look at the game fairly and objectively, we should have scored another two or three, which would have put a better scoreline on it. But the 1-0 still got us three points, which was important at the time. We’ve managed to win four in a row. We know if we make it five it will secure the second spot. That’s all we’re focused on right now.”
