Scotland World Cup 2010 Group 9 qualifying fixtures

Scotland World Cup 2010 Group 9 qualifying fixtures:

Saturday 6 September 2008 Macedonia (a)

Wednesday 10 September 2008 Iceland (a)

Saturday 11 October 2008 Norway (h)

Saturday 28 March 2009 Holland (a)

Wednesday 1 April 2009 Iceland (h)

Wednesday 19 August 2009 Norway (a)

Saturday 5 September 2009 Macedonia (h)

Wednesday 9 September 2009 Holland (h)

2 potential 'banana skins' at the start. Should be looking for 7 points from the first 3 fixtures.

The key thing is to get wins rather than draws.

The final match may see the Dutch having already qualified so that may boost the chances of getting second spot.

Not bad. Yes, two away games first but these are games we need to win no matter when they're played. Compensation is two home to finish. I'd like to see the full fixtures for the group but have onlyu been able to find the Scotland games.

Pleased to have avoided end of season matches in June 2009 and the only bad date from the POV of timing is Norway away when their season is in full swing and ours just starting

I can see us getting to the last game needing a point to reach 2nd place. And then either losing, or making 2nd place and being the worst 2nd placers and not making the playoffs!
