CRAIG BROWN, Scotland's caretaker manager, may bring in some new faces for tomorrow night's World Cup tie against Malta.

'Malta may be regarded as a 'nothing game' in terms of the World Cup, but it means an awful lot to me and some of the other less experienced players. This is a rebuilding phase, and a chance to do ourselves a bit of good,' he said.

Motherwell's Rob McKinnon and Dundee United's Billy McKinlay may play while Colin Hendry, of Blackburn, has a chance to establish himself at the back. Tranmere's Pat Nevin is certain to play as one of the strikers.
