Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain’s chances of gaining his first international cap have been boosted by the news that David Marshall is out of the Scotland squad for the friendly against Denmark at Hampden Park tomorrow night.
The 31-year-old Cardiff keeper is suffering from pneumonia, so boss Gordon Strachan has told the Dens Park stopper to remain with the squad.
Bain, 24, was left kicking his heels in Prague where an Ikechi Anya goal gave the visitors a 1-0 win with an in-form Allan McGregor playing the full 90 minutes.
The Dundee man is one of only two keepers in the squad for the visit of the Danes, with Celtic’s Craig Gordon, who has 43 caps, the other.
Birmingham defender Paul Caddis, who made his debut as a late substitute against the Czechs, has also remained with the squad.
Norwich defender Steven Whittaker is back in the squad after missing out on Prague as his wife was giving birth, while Hull midfielder Shaun Maloney has also been called up.
