Levein urges Scotland response after unlucky Wales defeat

Scotland boss Craig Levein wants his unlucky group of players to bounce back against Belgium on Tuesday.

Scotland boss Craig Levein wants his unlucky group of players to bounce back against Belgium on Tuesday.

The Scots were beaten 2-1 by Wales in Cardiff last night in World Cup qualifying as Gareth Bale scored a late double after James Morrison’s opener.

Levein feels a sense of injustice as Steven Fletcher had a header disallowed in the 75th minute which would have put Scotland 2-0 up but in the end they came away empty-handed and he hopes there is some better luck in Brussels in their next Group A fixture.

"We have had some hammer blows and this is the latest one,” Levein said.

"We have got an honest, hard-working group of boys who feel a bit aggrieved about what happened and we will try to use that for Tuesday.

"The only we thing we can do is go to Belgium and try to win the game. I feel an injustice but the important thing is that we react in the right manner.

"We all know the game is finished now and whether the officials have made one, two or three mistakes, it is not going to help us. We need to win in Belgium now."

Scotland dropped to second bottom on the group table courtesy of the defeat whilst Belgium are perched on top with seven points from three outings.
