Jamie McAllister has urged George Burley to give him the chance to help take Scotland a step closer to the World Cup by throwing him into their crucial qualifier against Holland.
The Bristol City full-back was forced to look on from the sidelines as Burley's men steered their qualification campaign back on track with a 2-0 win over Macedonia on Saturday. Second place and a potential play-off spot is now up for grabs if Scotland can produce the goods against Group Nine winners Holland, who arrive at Hampden boasting a 100% record.
McAllister said: "The support and the atmosphere on Saturday was unbelievable. When the second goal went in, the noise was incredible. Hopefully I get my chance on the pitch and can relish it."
He added: "I'm always hoping I get my chance and there have been a lot of boys in and out of the squad. It's up to the manager. I'm always itching to play.
"But it's the result that counts and hopefully whoever is on the park on Wednesday does the job and gets the three points.
"That's why you play the game, you want to play against the best in the world.
"The boys did great on Saturday, it was a massive three points, and sets us up nicely for the game on Wednesday."
