STEVEN Fletcher is expected to return to the Scotland squad for their clash with Ireland tomorrow.
The Dark Blues take on Martin O’Neill’s side in the return Euro 2016 Group D qualifier in Dublin.
Sunderland striker, Fletcher, sat out of last week’s 1-0 win over Qatar at Easter Road, due to a niggling injury.

But he is set to return and lead the attack, after the scoring a hat-trick in the 6-1 win over Gibraltar in March.
Gordon Strachan has a full squad to choose from, including Dons defender Mark Reynolds.
Ireland have to make the decision whether to risk skipper Robbie Keane.
The former Spurs, Liverpool and Celtic hitman missed Sunday’s 0-0 draw with England, as he played for LA Galaxy.
Keane, 34, was left on the bench from the start for the first time in 13 years in the reverse fixture at Celtic Park.
Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter has been ruled out, while Paul McShane is a doubt with a toe injury.
A win for Scotland could put them top of the group with 13 points, depending on results elsewhere.
Tomorrow’s clash at the Aviva Stadium is more crucial for the Irish, who are sitting in fourth in Group D with eight points.
Strachan’s Scots beat Ireland 1-0 in Glasgow last year, thanks to a Shaun Maloney wonder-goal.
You can follow all the action from the Aviva Stadium on the Evening Express website from 4.30pm.
