Scotland - Slovenia 1-0 Goals and Highlights 26/03/2017

Chris Martin's late goal reignited Scotland's World Cup qualifying campaign and eased the mounting pressure on manager Gordon Strachan as he secured a 1-0 triumph over Slovenia at Hampden Park.

It looked destined to be another missed opportunity for the Scots as they spurned several chances before the break and then looked bereft of ideas in the second half.

But Martin struck two minutes from time to end Slovenia's resistance and move Scotland to within two points of Group F's second-placed side Slovakia, who beat Malta 3-1.

Scotland were well on top for the majority of the first half and carved out some great opportunities, with Robert Snodgrass often at the fore. Somehow they failed to go into half-time ahead, though, Leigh Griffiths guilty of a shocking miss as he struck the crossbar before then hitting the post.

Griffiths' day got even worse when he was withdrawn due to injury early in the second half, and with him went much of Scotland's impetus and presence in attack.

Substitute Ikechi Anya wasted one of Scotland's few second-half chances late on and the writing appeared to be on the wall, but Martin - only introduced from the bench in the 82nd minute - secured a potentially vital win at the death, injecting life into a qualification quest that looked to be running out of hope.

Scotland looked every inch a side desperate for all three points during the early exchanges, forcing Jan Oblak into action after just two minutes, with the goalkeeper pushing away Russell Martin's close-range effort following Snodgrass' corner.

Oblak had to be alert again shortly after, getting down to his right to parry Griffiths' deflected effort to safety.

scotiathai To be fair, the absurd kick off time on a Sunday night, 12 hours before work and school the next day doesn't help. It's ridiculous. It'd have to be an overwhelmingly massive game for people to make the effort. If it were on a Saturday afternoon (as it used to be and should still be!) the stadium would've been a lot more occupied. It's time for these games to be brought back to a Saturday and midweek only!
