Scotland drew against Lithuania in their first home game of the World Cup Qualifying campaign in what was a frustrating night at Hampden.
James McArthur came off the bench to score a crucial equaliser ahead of Tuesday night’s match against Slovakia.
Vauxhall Man of the Match Andy Robertson said: “The first half was frustrating as we played quite well without breaking them down but we were sloppy with the final pass.
“We started the second half strongly but they caught us on the counter-attack. It was an uphill battle with a team like that who wasted time and got a lot of players behind the ball.
“Jamesy (McArthur) popped up with the goal which we were all grateful for. We had a couple of chances near the end and Grant Hanley maybe should have finished his but I think the defender did quite well on the line.
“When you create chances and they don’t hit the back of the net it is disappointing, especially for people who are missing them.
“On another day if we take them we would win comfortably.”
When Lithuania scored, Scotland refused to relent and battled late on to try and gain the three points.
It wasn’t to be though and Robertson is still positive ahead of the visit to Slovakia on Tuesday.
He said: “We could have easily lost tonight after they scored as they made it difficult for us, wasting time and getting everyone behind the ball.
“It’s a wide open group and we’re still second so we’re not in the worst position but we know it could be better.
“If you have a frustrating night then you want the next game to come around very quickly and we’re lucky that we have Slovakia on Tuesday.
“The gaffer might make a couple of changes and see how the guys are with injuries etc.
“Slovakia had a difficult night as they lost to Slovenia. They’ve got no points out of two games and they’re the second seed so we’re doing better than them but we need to go over there and get a positive result.”
