Match report | Preview
Ireland conceded a late penalty for the hosts to clinch the contest. Ireland opened the scoring courtesy of John Egan but second-half goals from Jack Hendry and the late Ryan Christie penalty seal the tie for the hosts.

Scotland started the brighter with the first attempt on goal coming from Ryan Christie as he struck an effort on the edge of the Irish area that went wide of Gavin Bazunu’s far post.

Scott McTominay was next to have a sight on the Irish goal but his low effort was well saved by the Bazunu. Ireland grew into the game with Troy Parrott breaking free of the Scottish defence and despite being under pressure in the goal area he was able to finish with a well-placed shot however he was ruled to be offside in the build-up to the goal.

Ireland was to get the opening goal of the game when a corner that was initially cleared by Dykes fell to Jayson Molumby whose header was knocked down by Nathan Collins into the path of John Egan whose low effort beat Craig Gordon at his near post.

Scotland had a chance to draw things level when a cross from Stuart Armstrong was met by John McGinn in the area but he couldn’t direct his effort goalwards. Scotland was to respond early in the second half when a cross from Christie into the Irish area was met by Jack Hendry whose header arced past Bazunu and beat him at the pack post to bring the scores level.

Matt Doherty had a sight on goal just moments later after a clever pass from Jason Knight but he curled it well wide of Gordan’s far post. McGinn went close once again with a low effort just outside the area that went wide.

Ireland had an excellent opportunity to go ahead again when a breakaway from a corner saw Obafemi play the perfect pass to Parrott who was one on one with Gordan who pulled off a point-blank save to deny the Irish striker.

Molumby had a shot blocked en route to goal as Chiedozie Ogbene broke free of the attention of the Scottish defence to pass wide to James McClean whose cross was only cleared to Molumby and his shot on goal was blocked and cleared.

Gavin Bazunu was forced to make an excellent save as Scotland broke down the right with Ryan Fraser’s shot on the edge of the area forcing the Irish keeper to tip the ball over the bar, the resulting corner saw Matt Doherty clear the ball at the back post to stop a certain goal.

Scotland was awarded a penalty after a corner sent into the area was handled in the box by an Irish player with Ryan Christie sending Bazunu the wrong way to put Scotland in the lead.

Ireland will conclude their Nations League Group B with a home tie to Armenia on Tuesday night in the Aviva Stadium.
