STRACHAN LOOKS TO KINGSLEY FOR LEFT BACK ROLE

0
GORDON STRACHAN is set to call up Swansea’s Stephen Kingsley to challenge Rangers skipper Lee Wallace for Scotland’s problem left-back spot.

And the international boss may hand former Celtic defender Charlie Mulgrew, who joined Blackburn Rovers in the summer, a shock return as cover.

Strachan will name his squad on Wednesday for the England clash at Wembley on November 11 and will be without Celtic’s impressive Kieran Tierney and Hull City’s Andy Robertson, who are both sidelined by injury.unspecified-182

Kingsley, a regular with the Welsh outfit this season in England’s top flight, playing both left-back and centre-half, earned his first cap in June when he came on as a 63rd minute substitute against France in Metz.

The former Falkirk star has also impressed in his six Under-21 appearances.

Mulgrew, 30, made only his second start of the season for Blackburn yesterday after making a full recovery from a calf injury which kept him out for a month.

The versatile performer has made two appearances from the bench in the past two weeks for Owen Coyle’s strugglers before being given the nod to face Wolves in the 1-1 draw at Ewood Park yesterday.
