Scotland defender Russell Martin: 'Result against England vital'

Scotland defender Russell Martin says that his side must avoid defeat in their upcoming clash with England.

Scotland defender Russell Martin has declared that the Tartan Army must avoid defeat in their upcoming World Cup qualifier away to England following Tuesday evening's 3-0 reverse in Slovakia.

The Norwich City captain believes that his side will have a fighting chance of reaching the finals if they pull off a result at Wembley Stadium.

"If you look at the group, England only managed to draw tonight, it leaves us three points off the top. It's such a tight group so we need to pick ourselves up," Martin told reporters. "It's frustrating but we are still in with a shout. We need to make sure we try and get a result against England now."

Scotland's 3-0 defeat in Slovakia came hot on the heels of a disappointing 1-1 draw with Lithuania at home, leaving them in fourth place in Group F after three matches.
