Alex McLeish's men fell to a 1-0 defeat at Hampden Park on Friday, but the new boss is not too concerned and is embracing the challenge that awaits in Budapest.
A number of key players are missing either through design or injury, meaning the game represents an opportunity for fringe players to push for a place in future squads.
Hungary, meanwhile, also come into the game on the back of a loss, having suffered a 3-2 defeat at home to Kazakhstan last week.

Betting & Match Odds
Hungary are narrow favourites according to dabblebet, who rate the Magyars at 6/4 to win, while Scotland are priced at 9/5. A draw between the sides ia a 2/1 bet.
Back in the Scotland hotseat for a second tenure, McLeish finds his country at a low ebb and he has been tasked with the job of rebuilding ahead of the Nations League and Euro 2020.
And, with that in mind, he is set to make wholesale changes for the game against Hungary on Tuesday in the name of experimentation.
"It'll be a different team again and we'll look at other players," McLeish said. "It's not a competition, that's why we experimented a little bit.
"I'd like to have a great win ratio but you've got to make some sacrifices and we've learned a lot. There's a few things we can look at going forward."
The Scots will have to plan for the match without the likes of McTominay, Hanley and Ritchie, but others will be keen to step up and show they are worthy of their place.
