    Southgate's warning

    Gareth Southgate has warned his England troops that they can't afford to lose their Battle of Britain with Scotland.

    He said: "We can't be experimental because that would be ridiculous.

    "We have to find the right balance of physical freshness, finding out about some players, winning, playing well, the usual things we expect of us.

    "It's a great fixture, a fabulous game. It's a brilliant sporting rivalry and a great game to be involved in.

    "It's a really good test for us as a team and you learn a lot about the group and the individuals playing a high-level opponent in a really intimidating atmosphere.

    "These are the sort of matches that have been important in our progress and it's a challenge we have to head towards, walk into and relish the game. We have huge ambitions as a team but we have a lot of work to do.

    "We have to compete, you will get rolled over if you don't compete but we also have to get the ball down and play so we have got to find the right balance emotionally, physically and we have to control these emotions.

    "The tempo of the game will be high, we're prepared for that and have to make sure we are very good versions of ourselves."

    Maguire snubbed

    There is no room for Harry Maguire in England's starting XI at Hampden Park.

    The out-of-sorts Manchester United centre-back started in the heart of defence in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Ukraine.

    But he's been DROPPED by Southgate in favour of a pairing between Lewis Dunk and Marc Guehi.

    More on Trippier

    It is reported that the decision has been made to counter-act Scotland's Aaron Hickey, who will be up against Trippier.

    Hickey likes to cut inside from the wing, which would suit the right-footed Newcastle defender.

    Trippier is more accustomed to playing on the other side of the backline having played the role for his whole career.

    Latest – Trippier set to start

    Kieran Trippier is set to start for England against Scotland – however he could be in a new position.

    The Three Lions face Scotland in a revival of their epic rivalry at Hampden Park tonight.

    Manager Gareth Southgate is believed to have made a change to his defensive line.

    Trippier, 32, is set to be named in the starting eleven, however Sky Sports have claimed that he will be playing at left-back.

    This means that goalscorer against Ukraine Kyle Walker will keep his spot at right back.

    However, it does mean that Chelsea's Ben Chilwell could drop to the bench.

    Early team news

    Scotland have no fresh injury concerns to worry about after their win in Cyprus.

    Changes could be made with Nathan Patterson potentially coming in for Aaron Hickey at right-back, while Stuart Armstrong, Ryan Christie and Lyndon Dykes will all push for starts.

    Key men like Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney, John McGinn and Scott McTominay should all keep their places.

    As for England, there could be a re-jig to the side that featured on Saturday versus Ukraine.

    Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford seem in line for starts.

    Levi Colwill and Eddie Nketiah will both be hoping they are handed their senior debuts.

    Eberechi Eze and Conor Gallagher could also feature as Southgate shuffles his pack.

    Welcome to Scotland vs England

    Football's oldest rivalry reconvenes tonight when England take on in-form Scotland.

    The 150th Anniversary Heritage Match is celebrating the history of the neighbours.

    But away from the friendly, Scotland could be celebrating themselves with their place in Euro 2024 confirmed if Norway draw with Georgia later on.

    Scotland manager Steve Clarke is the opportunity to lock horns with England tonight, saying: "We know we'll have a real challenge on our hands.

    "Not only are England serial qualifiers for the major tournaments they have performed exceptionally well under the guidance of Southgate.

    "They have a very talented and experienced squad, who will travel here looking to end our current run of positive results.

    "Having said that we want to beat them every bit as much as they want to beat us.

    "This should make for a full bloodied contest played in the right spirit in front of a full Hampden Park, which I’m sure will generate a magnificent atmosphere.

    "In some friendlies you can perhaps relax a little, but not this one."
