Live on BBC ALBA

On Tuesday, Scotland will be looking for their third win in a row following Thursday night’s 2-1 win over Belarus.

Erin Cuthbert was the star of the show in Falkirk when a goal either side of the break from the Chelsea star was enough to see off the Belarusians.

The match itself was a lively affair with Scotland leaving the game frustrated not to score more.

Poland are next up as Scotland have three games remaining in their World Cup qualification campaign.

Shelley Kerr’s side currently lie in second place, three points behind Switzerland.

Switzerland also play on Tuesday, away from home against Belarus.

Team news

Playing for the national team regularly since 2009, Rachel Corsie is set to make her 100th appearance against Poland.

The Utah Royals centre-back has been Shelley Kerr’s captain following the retirement of stalwart Gemma Fay.

What to expect from Poland?

Ranked 31st in the world, Poland lie five points behind Scotland in Group 2.

They are without Ewa Pajor who has been ruled out through injury along with Paulina Dudek who is suspended following her sending off against Scotland.

The Poles still possess a strong squad however, including experienced Aleksandra Sikora who is a hardy defender with an eye for a goal.

In between the sticks is Paris Saint Germain goalkeeper Katarzyna Kiedrzynek.

Pre-match thoughts from Shelley Kerr

Reflecting on the Belarus victory, Kerr said :“We played really, really well against Belarus but just didn’t take our chances and we could have won by six or seven.

“We got the three points though which was the priority. We’ve looked to switch off from that game, take the positives and recover in time for Poland.

“The players have played 10 games now under myself and Andy (Thomson) and I maintain that we have made great strides. We now need to set up tactically well to put on a show against Poland."

Last time out against Poland, Scotland won 3-0 in a game which changed in the Scots’ favour when Lee Alexander saved a penalty at 0-0.

Having scrutinized the match in Paisley, Kerr is well aware of what her side are required to do.

She said: “The Poland game is still fresh in our minds as we played them not long ago.

“The message to our players is they need to problem solve during the game and focus on what we do well as we have a talented group.

“They have two key players out but that’s not something we can think about as they have a talented team, even without those two.

“Every time we’ve got together as a squad I’ve said every match is key and as we continue the World Cup campaign each game becomes more and more important.

“We’re getting down to the nitty gritty now and we need a positive result to help us going into the final games and put pressure on Switzerland.”

Kerr’s captain Rachel Corsie is preparing herself for what could be a momentous occasion.

The Scotland skipper is on the brink of reaching her 100th cap for her country and her head coach was full of praise for the skipper.

“Rachel is one of the best captains I’ve worked with. She’s mature and has a real art of including everyone in the squad off and on the pitch

“She is a link between the staff and the players. Her communication skills are phenomenal.

“I’ve enjoyed working with her and she is a natural born leader.”

Where will the match be played?

The game will be played at the 15,000 Kielce Stadium.
