SCOTLAND will hope to record a morale boosting win when they face Cyprus in this Euro 2020 qualifier.

A run of one win in their past five qualifying games means Steve Clarke’s men can’t progress from Group I and will require Nations League play-off success to reach next summer’s tournament.

They sit a place and a point behind Cyprus in fourth in their group and have a number of injury concerns going into the match.

The Mediterranean island side came close to taking a point in the reverse fixture, but were ultimately beaten by an 89th-minute Oliver Burke effort in the 2-1 Scottish victory.

What time does Cyprus vs Scotland kick off?

THE two sides meet at the GSP Stadium on Saturday, November 16.

Kick-off is at 2pm GMT, meaning the sides get started at 4pm local time in Nicosia.

Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?

THE game will be shown live on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event.

Coverage starts at 1.30pm and will form a day of live games in which Wales and Northern Ireland are also in action on Sky.

What is the team news?
