The Scotland squad is gathering ahead of the game against the Czech Republic and Craig Levein is pleased to see supposedly injured players picking up their room keys. Good news for Craig Levein as Steven Naismith has declared himself fit for Saturday's EURO2012 qualifier against Czech Republic at Hampden. The Rangers striker scored the second goal in the 2-0 win over Aberdeen on Sunday despite struggling with a bruised hip bone. There had been some confusion over the injury status of Spurs defender Alan Hutton but he joined up with Craig Levein's squad along with captain Darren Fletcher. The Manchester United midfielder has missed all five internationals so far this year as he recovered from the after effects of a virus. However, Levein has already said: "He will play, guaranteed, in both games." The visit of the Czechs comes before the home game against Lithuania next Tuesday night. Scotland need to win both games to have a realistic chance of finishing second behind runaway group leaders Spain to secure a play-off place.
