Wales vs Scotland will kick off at 2.45 p.m. ET in their vital World Cup Qualifier on Friday. Both teams have struggled in the group so far and will be desperate to take all three points from today's game. The action can be watched online through live stream (details below).
After two games Scotland have drawn both games in Group A and currently sit in sixth place with just two points. Wales are in even a bigger dilemma having lost both their opening matches and lie bottom of Group A in sixth place.
Wales will see this is an opportunity to get their qualification campaign back on track, and a win today would see them leapfrog Scotland in the group. However, if they are to do so they will have to completely revamp their game, which has so far seen them lose convincingly in both games so far - 2-0 to Belgium, and 6-1 to Serbia.
Wales will have to do it all without Adam Matthews. However, they will boosted by Gareth Bale being declared fit, and will hope he can inspire them to their first win of 2012.
Meanwhile Scotland will be able to use skipper Darren Fletcher who declared himself fit for today's game, following spending 11 months on the sidelines with a chronic bowel problem.
Wales have not lost their opening three World Cup qualifying matches since their campaign in 1968-69, and will be hoping not to repeat that history today. New manager Chris Coleman will also be hoping not to make history - if the Welsh lose today he will be the first ever Welsh boss to lose his first five games in charge of the national side.
