Scotland's Darren Fletcher admits that Scotland face an uphill task to reach the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Darren Fletcher has conceded that Scotland must pick up a positive result against Belgium tomorrow night if they are to stand any chance of reaching the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Friday's 2-1 defeat to Wales has left Craig Levein's side with just two points from their opening three qualifying encounters.

Despite targeting all three points against the Belgians, Manchester United midfielder Fletcher has admitted that it would still be a tall order for his nation to reach their first World Cup since 1998.

"We need a massive result on Tuesday night," he said. "There is no doubt about it.

"If we can win that, it would still be an uphill battle but we need to regroup quickly, get our good game plan ready for Belgium and if we can go there and manage to get three points then we will be slightly back in it. That is going to be a big ask."

Fletcher recently returned to the national team following a 12-month battle with a bowel condition.
