The former Celtic manager feels that his players are primed to cause their opponents problems and believes that they were unlucky to lose against Chris Coleman's men in Cardiff

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan is confident that his side are well equipped for their World Cup qualifier against Wales on Friday.

His side currently sit at the foot of Group A, having scraped together just two draws and a pair of losses to open their campaign to reach Brazil 2014.

However, Strachan believes that his men are well versed in the threat posed by their opponents and can make an impact if they play to the best of their ability.

"The players are aware where there might be danger in the team. We've contingency plans for everything," the 56-year-old told reporters.

"If we play to our potential, which they've shown throughout the week, then we're expecting us to cause problems."

When pressed as to whether Scotland's players would be in search of revenge for their loss earlier in qualification to Wales in Cardiff, Strachan claimed to be unknowing but was quick to rue his side's bad luck.

"I don't know. You'd need to speak to them," he continued. "What they've got to remember is the good bits about that game. They could have won the game and should have won the game.

"Unfortunately the footballing gods were against them that night but I don't think they'll need any more motivation."
