Ahead of the home Group F match against the Faroe Islands at Hampden Park on Wednesday night, the Scottish boss welcomed all the increased expectations as “good” and added a reminder of the recent success.
He said: “For the first time in 23 years, we were able to qualify for a big tournament and we don’t want to forget that. We don’t want to forget the good feeling. I don’t want anyone to be too negative. They’re definitely not negative in camp.”
Steve Clarke hinted that he could replace the Faroese away goalkeepers, who drew 1-1 in Moldova before losing 3-1 away to Austria.
Regular number one David Marshall was in good form in his country, but he encountered some criticism for trying to defend a shot from distance by Dor Peretz a minute before half-time in Israel.

Poland can be much more than an independent team, but England’s task will certainly be a bit easier if Robert Lewandowski does not play at Wembley.
