Scotland stick to Saturday games

Scotland will not play home Euro 2012 qualifying matches on Friday nights, despite changes to the international calendar. Fifa has ratified plans to play internationals on Tuesday nights instead of Wednesday and individual associations could choose to switch to Friday nights to maintain the four-day gap between games.

"I imagine Saturday internationals will continue for Scotland," Gordon Smith, the chief executive of the SFA, said. "Police are not keen on Friday night matches. [Also] fans travel to Glasgow and would probably prefer us not to play on Friday."
