Whittaker stays upbeat

Have your say

Steven WHITTAKER insists Scotland still have everything to play for as their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign heads towards its climax.

A 1-0 win over Lithuania on Tuesday night kept their faint hopes of a play-off spot alive, albeit Saturday’s 2-2 draw with the Czech Republic means their fate is no longer in their own hands.

The Scots now head into their final two games – away to Liechtenstein and Group I winners Spain – aiming to deliver the goods, while hoping other results also go their way.

Whittaker said: “We need to take the positives out of the two fixtures. We’ve got Liechtenstein away and we are capable of taking points from there. Then we will see what we need in the last game and see how the other results go in the first set of fixtures.

“There is still a lot to play for.”
