Team news

Scotland have a couple of key absentees with Celtic midfielders Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong both missing through injury, while Matt Ritchie is also absent with a knock. 

For Slovakia, injured forward Michal Duris misses out along with suspended Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar.

How does the group look?

Wins in their final two games, tonight against Slovakia and away to Slovenia this Sunday, would book Scotland a play-off spot.

England will win the group and book a place in next year's finals with a win against the Slovenians at Wembley this evening, while a Scots victory would lift Gordon Strachan's side ahead of Slovakia into second place.

1. England 20pts

2. Slovakia 15pts

3. Slovenia 14pts

4. Scotland 14pts

5. Lithuania 5pts
