Middlesbrough striker Scott McDonald, has been backed by club and country colleague Rhys Williams to end his international drought against Scotland. The former Celtic hitman has yet to score a single goal for Australia in 25 appearances.

Williams said: "He's a brilliant player. I think once he gets that monkey off his back, I think he'll start putting them in the net all the time - he's that type of player.

"I think he's a lot on confidence and that first goal, when it comes, will be massive for him and also the country.

"I just hope that he can get that goal, I know he's capable of it and he's such a good player that I'm surprised it hasn't come a lot sooner."
