Ireland and Scotland will do battle on Friday with top spot in Group D up for grabs.

The duo are currently second and third in the standings behind leaders Poland but crucially, ahead of World Cup holders, Germany.

A win for either side, coupled with a defeat for Poland away to Georgia, would see them head into the new year as the group leaders, a significant benchmark to lay down.

Both sides will be full of confidence after battling performances last time out.

Ireland showed their fighting quality as they scored an injury time equaliser to snatch a point against Germany, in Germany while Scotland also showed their metal as they came away from a tricky trip to Poland with a draw.

With 2 wins and 1 draw from their opening three games, Irish manager Martin O’Neill will be delighted with his first start to a qualifying campaign.

Wins over Georgia and Gibraltar gave Ireland a strong start before the draw with Germany.

Scotland meanwhile have also accounted for Georgia but lost to Germany before getting back on track with the point in Warsaw.

Both sides have included surprise names in their squads for the game with Heart’s unknown 20-year-old uncapped right-back Callum Paterson coming in for the more familiar but injured Phil Bardsley while Ireland have included Derby defender Cyrus Christie and Ipswich forward David McGoldrick for the first time after they got International clearance.

International eligibility has been a key talking point ahead of the game with James McCarthy, currently struggling with a hamstring injury, and Aiden McGeady both born in Scotland.

Former Scottish star Gordon McQueen claimed the pair should get a hostile reception before the game however another former international, Pat Nevin doesn’t believe it will be an issue.

Speaking on Irish radio, former Everton star Nevin said “It’s representative of what some Scottish people feel, but it’s not representative of the Tartan Army”.

The teams have met on 9 separate occasions with Scotland winning four and drawing 2.

The last two games have gone the way of Ireland with the Scottish last claiming a success with a 2-1 win in 2000.
