Andy Robertson is glad for the chance to return to action so soon after Scotland's 1-1 draw against Lithuania on Saturday night.

It took an 89th-minute leveller from substitute James McArthur to rescue the Scots in their World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park, after Fedor Cernych had fired the visitors into a shock lead on the hour mark.

Gordon Strachan and his side travel to Slovakia for matchday three tomorrow night and the Hull left-back, voted man of the match against the Lithuanians, is pleased there is no time to dwell on two lost points.

"In a league or in internationals, if you have a game in three days it is perfect because the boys can get over it," he said.

"We are focused on Slovakia already and that has got to be the case because if you dwell on this result it will end up being a negative one on Tuesday and that's how it works."
