Scotland boss Gordon Strachan feels his men are very capable of beating Wales in their 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday.

There is still positivity in the air, despite still seeking their first win in the competition after getting two points in four matches.

And with them effectively being eliminated from the tournament, the former Southampton boss feels they can beat Wales if they give a spirited effort.

“The players are aware where there might be danger in the [Wales] team. We’ve contingency plans for everything,” he told reporters.

“If we play to our potential, which they’ve shown throughout the week, then we’re expecting us to cause problems.”

However, the manager steered away from talks that they are trying to be vengeful after their 2-1 defeat to the Welsh team at Hampden Park on October.

“I don’t know. You’d need to speak to them,” he said when asked about the defeat being a factor to win.

“What they’ve got to remember is the good bits about that game. They could have won the game and should have won the game.

“Unfortunately the footballing gods were against them that night but I don’t think they’ll need any more motivation.”
