After a nervous and off-color performance in Tórshavn, Scotland moved within one victory of earning second place thanks to a dramatic late Lyndon Dykes goal.

Scotland's slow first half saw them thank Craig Gordon for keeping the score level as he made a stunning save from point-blank range to preserve the game scoreless.

After the interval, Billy Gilmour came near three times until Nathan Patterson whipped a late cross in for a defender to deflect it off Dykes' and into the net, prompting a long VAR review that felt like an eternity.

With the latest result, after eight matches played, Scotland is trailing behind Denmark in Group F with 17 points and has two matches left to play against Moldova on the 12th of Nov and Denmark on the 15th of Nov.
