Half-Time Report: Own goal puts Scotland ahead against Georgia

Scotland lead 1-0 at half time of their Euro 2016 qualifier thanks to an own goal from Georgia defender Akaki Khubatia.

An own goal from Georgia has given Scotland a 1-0 lead at half time of their Euro 2016 qualifier at Ibrox this evening.

The visitors tried to put Gordon Strachan's side under pressure early when Nikoloz Gelashvili made a run down the left flank, but Grant Hanley made sure that he did not find his way into the box.

Scotland soon started to dominate the possession, and managed to open the scoring inside the first 30 minutes when a Shaun Maloney volley from the edge of the box was punched by the keeper onto the legs of defender Akaki Khubutia and into the back of the net.

Steven Naismith had a chance to double their advantage a couple of minutes later, but he scuffed his shot, allowing Giorgio Loria a comfortable save.

The Everton forward continued to look threatening for the hosts as the break approached, while Maloney also had chances, but they were unable to add a second before the half-time whistle.
