Scotland defeat Malta, and close gap on Slovakia

Another positive result by the Scotland squad. This time it was against Malta, at Hampden, and the result was 2 – 0.

A first half header by Christophe Berra put Scotland ahead. Then, in the second half, Leigh Griffiths scored a second for Scotland. And that was how it remained to the end. Some of us would have hoped for a few more goals, but another victory after Friday’s win was most welcome.

Scotland are now within one point off second place. Thanks to Slovakia dropping points to England, the gap between the Slovaks and both Scotland and Slovenia is a single point. So, with Scotland, lined up to face both Slovakia and Slovenia in their last two matches, it seems Scotland’s fate is firmly back in it’s own hands.
