"I think we’ve recovered well since Friday. It’s obviously a short trip between games, but we’ve given ourselves the best chance to perform well.

Winning on the road

Anna Signeul's team suffered their first competitive defeat since October 2014 on Friday against Iceland, but they'll be hoping to put the match at the Falkirk Stadium behind them with their third consecutive victory on the road.

In the previous two away games in Group 1 Scotland have returned home with maximum points - a Kim Little hat-trick was enough to defeat Slovenia back in September, while a four-goal blitz inside ten minutes in Skopje ensured a comfortable victory over FYR Macedonia in October.

Previous Encounter | Scotland 7-0 Belarus | 23rd October 2016

Today's opposition, Belarus, are currently fifth in the group. The Eastern European side frustrated Scotland in the first half of the home fixture in Motherwell and, had it not been for a Jane Ross goal at the end of the first half, would have gone into the half-time interval on level terms. Ross' goal, however was significant in the context of the game; Scotland went on to score six in the second half, to run out 7-0 victors.
