An injury doubt over Gareth Bale has taken up most of the build-up to Scotland's game against Wales, with the Tottenham Hotspur winger suffering from an ankle problem that could keep him out of the game.
Wales will be sweating over the in-form winger's fitness, and although neither side has much chance of qualification, the game could, if some reports are to be believed, be Wales boss Chris Coleman's last if his side suffers defeat at Hampden Park. The visitors will also be without Liverpool's Joe Allen, who is out for the season.
Scotland have one likely starter out injured in James Morrison too, so it will be intriguing to see who is selected to support Steven Fletcher in attack. Ross McCormack and James Forrest are also out for the Scots, though neither were likely to start. Gordon Strachan could instead opt for a bold 4-4-2 with Jordan Rhodes, which has been called for by pundits and former players for some time. Barry Bannan has also been called up and could start in midfield.
Even if Gareth Bale starts, the Scots will be slight favourites in Strachan's first competitive game. The former Celtic boss fielded a very attacking lineup in his first match against Estonia, and he could well follow suit here at Hampden.
