Six pull out of Scotland squad

03 June 2013 01:47

Six players have withdrawn from the Scotland squad to face Croatia in a World Cup qualifier on Friday.

Full-backs Lee Wallace and Danny Fox have been forced to pull out, while the defence has also been weakened by the loss of Gary Caldwell.

Celtic duo Scott Brown and James Forrest are also struggling in terms of fitness and will not make the trip to Zagreb.

Brighton midfielder Liam Bridcutt completes the call-offs ahead of the match, as the Scots seek their first win of the campaign.

Drafted into the squad are Motherwell full-back Steven Hammell and Aston Villa's Barry Bannan.
