Stevie May in line to win first Scotland cap

  • Reports suggesting Stevie May could feature for Scotland
  • The Scots face England this evening
  • Game at Celtic Park kicks off at 8.00pm

Media reports on Tuesday morning are suggesting Stevie May is line to win his first senior Scotland cap.

The Owls striker has waited patiently for his first appearance on the international stage for his country.

Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher has been ruled out with an ankle injury leaving Derby’s Chris Martin and May to battle for a place against England, with Everton’s Steven Naismith likely to start.

While Martin appears to be the favourite to get the nod, Scotland boss Gordon Strachan has said he may mix things up in terms of team selection.

Ahead of the Scots’ clash with England, Strachan said: “One or two might need resting, while Steven Fletcher is having a scan on his ankle.

“It would be nice to see Stevie somewhere along the line and Chris Martin. I watched him in last week's 5-0 win for Derby and he was terrific.

“We might try a different shape but we have to go on and win it. Everyone in the squad would like to play but winning is the priority.”
