Hibernian goalkeeper Jenna Fife has been called up to the Scotland Women's squad for this month's World Cup qualifiers against Belarus and Albania.

Jennifer Beattie and Emma Mitchell, who missed this summer's Euro 2017 finals, are also included.

Rachael Small, who returned to the squad after a four-year absence for the recent friendly win over Hungary, retains her place.

Coach Shelley Kerr has also called up Fife's club-mate Lucy Graham.

She earned her first cap as the Scots won 3-0 in Hungary thanks to goals from Lana Clelland, Claire Emslie and Jane Ross.

That was Kerr's first match after replacing Anna Signeul, and the games in Belarus (19 October) and at home to Albania (24 October) are her first competitive fixtures.

Switzerland top Group Two having beaten Albania and Poland. Belarus lost to the Poles then beat the Albanians.
