Caddis: Scots must stay cool
Scotland under-21 skipper Paul Caddis admits complacency might be a problem for the European Championship qualifying play-off against Iceland - but not among the players.
After finishing top of Group 10 with a last-gasp win over Austria at Pittodrie last month, Billy Stark's side were relieved to miss Spain and England in the play-off draw, paired, instead, with the Icelanders with the first leg in Reykjavik on Thursday and the return game at Easter Road next Monday.
Swindon full-back Caddis said: "It is not a danger for the players but I think it is a danger for the country. I hope the nation doesn't think that because we are playing against Iceland, that it's an easy game and we are just going to go through."
He added: "They deserve to be there as much as we do and if people have been following the under-21s they will see that Iceland drew 2-2 in Germany and then beat them 4-1.
"So they are no pushovers. I hear that Iceland are bringing a lot of players back from their senior team which shows a bit of respect for us.
"But no matter which 11 they put out, we know they are going to be a really good side and tough to break down.
"We need to, first and foremost, not concede.
"No matter what game you play in you are guaranteed to get a chance and hopefully we take it,
"If we keep a clean sheet in the away game then then you could say it's in our hands for the return game."
