Billy Stark: 'We had a point to prove'

Scotland Under-21s coach Billy Stark says that his side played like a team with a point to prove during tonight's 2-1 win over their Slovakia counterparts.

Scotland Under-21 manager Billy Stark has praised his side following tonight's 2-1 win over their Slovakia counterparts at St Mirren Park.

Stuart Armstrong and Stevie May were on target as the young Scots bounced back from successive defeats against England and Holland in the Euro 2015 qualifiers.

"We have had a wee bit of criticism which was absolutely on the money in terms of the England game. But we drew a lot from the Holland result," Sky Sports News quotes Stark as saying.

"We had a point to prove and that is a good thing when you have got boys who want to show that they have got some quality that people haven't been able to see because of the goals we conceded."

The result moves Scotland up to joint second in Group Three of the Euro 2015 qualifiers.
