Fletcher put on easy list ahead of Cyprus friendly

Scotland captain and midfielder Darren Fletcher, along with striker Craig Mackail-Smith, did not train on Tuesday ahead of tomorrow's friendly against Cyprus.

Steven Whittaker, Phil Bardsley and Jamie Mackie also sat on the sidelines but manager Craig Levein stressed that it was a precautionary measure as the players continued their recovery from weekend games.

Charlie Adam, Graham Dorrans, Alan Hutton, David Marshall, Russell Martin and Lee Wallace have already pulled out of the match, while the Leeds winger Robert Snodgrass is a major doubt with a leg injury.
