Steve Clarke claims Scotland are “not short of issues” ahead of their crunch Nations League game against Ukraine in Krakow on Tuesday night.

Skipper Andrew Robertson was already injured before September’s triple-header and fellow defenders Nathan Patterson, Kieran Tierney and Scott McKenna are also out for the final fixture, with midfielder Scott McTominay suspended.

A virus in the camp has also affected strikers Lyndon Dykes and Che Adams although the latter took part in a media conference and said he felt “great” ahead of a game where, after home wins against Ukraine and Republic of Ireland, B1 leaders Scotland need only a point to win the group and clinch promotion to League A.

“We have some kind of virus in the camp, just sickness,” said Clarke, who confirmed that right-back Aaron Hickey, taken off with a knock on Saturday, had trained with the squad.

“Lyndon Dykes and Che Adams didn’t feel very well this morning but they will be on the plane.

“So we have that to worry about, so we are not short of issues and we are also not short of determination to go there and finish the job.”

Clarke, who called up Hearts duo Barrie McKay and Stephen Kingsley on Sunday, was disappointed to lose Tierney and McKenna but insists the squad can be “adaptable.”

“You don’t want to lose anyone from the squad,” said Clarke, who stated he could “trust” McKay and Kingsley.

“Kieran and Scott are two good players playing to the best of their abilities. Injuries are sent to test you, it is now a chance for someone else.

“As I say, we have a sickness bug in the camp, maybe I will wake up tomorrow morning and have a different set of problems, I don’t know.

“But just deal with it. You are always being asked questions, you are always being tested but I am sure we will do enough to pass the test.”
