MALKY MACKAY'S chances of impressing SFA bosses tonight look slim.

He's lost the top attacker from a failed World Cup campaign and with Leigh Griffiths out the only striker in his squad is Jason Cummings. Last night's withdrawal of Celtic skipper Scott Brown is another blow.

But the ex-Hibs man, now at Nottingham Forest, won't start so it's likely Mackay will put a square peg in a round hole (Matt Phillips) against Holland. He's netted twice for West Brom this season and is 5-2 at Unibet to score.

Scotland are unbeaten in seven while Holland have won six of seven under ex-Rangers boss Dick Advocaat including four out of five qualifiers – but that wasn't enough to make it to Russia.

Star man Arjen Robben has been excused duty but on-form attackers Memphis Depay, Quincy Promes and Ryan Babel are included.

Other recognised players heading to Pittodrie include Daley Blind, Virgil van Dijk, Georginio Wijnaldum Wesley Sneijder and Kevin Strootman so the Dutch should justify being 11-10 favourites at William Hill.

And with the Scots short up top an away win to nil at 12-5 with McBookie has a chance.

Scotland are a biggest 3-1 at Marathonbet while a draw pays 23-10 at McBookie.

    Cheers mr fixit,only normally do inplays but will make an exception and will go for Holland to score a couple@11/10,they have the inform players and Scots under strength by all accounts on your write up

      The Scotland team is as I say: the likes of Christie, McLean, McGregor, Forrest and Jack will start. Tierney playing as a makeshift centre-half and Phillips as a makeshift centre-forward.
      It’s still a friendly though and much will depend on Holland’s desire.
