  1. Goodbye

    James McArthur's late equaliser salvages a point for Scotland as Gordon Strachan stresses it may prove an important one in Group F.

    Much frustration and gnashing of teeth within the Tartan Army ranks as attention turns to Tuesday's trip to Slovakia.

    Thanks for your company tonight. We'll have reaction from the Scotland camp, including video, on our site and social platforms later.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend. 

  2. Scotland defence 'fragile'

    Gordon Strachan reckons that could turn out to be a good point for Scotland in the final analysis. I hope he's right but I can't see it myself at the moment. If tonight wasn't Must-Win, as we were being told, then Tuesday in Slovakia certainly is now. Any more points spilled and the party's over. Maybe it is already. 

    Scotland didn't create enough cast-iron chances against Lithuania from plenty great attacking positions. The central striking position is a problem. 

    The manager thought Chris Martin was outstanding. I'm not sure there would be too much agreement on that. And our central defence is fragile. Too easily opened up and the Lithuanians could have gone away with all three points rather than just the one.  

  3. Lithuania seek 'miracle'

    FT: Scotland 1-1 Lithuania

    Lithuania coach Edgaras Jankauskas: "We are proud of our display and I'm proud of my team. In some periods, we were successful in cancelling their main weapons."

    Can they finish above Scotland in Group F? "It would be a miracle."

    "it was a fair result. At points it was like a battlefield with elbows flying." 

  4. 'It's a strange group'

    FT: Scotland 1-1 Lithuania

    "In the second half we were the far better side," Scotland manager Gordon Strachan tells the media conference at Hampden. 

    "We'll only find out later on if it's a good point. It's a strange, strange group." 

  5. 'Some brave performances'

    FT: Scotland 1-1 Lithuania

    "A factor in the game is missing chances," says Strachan in response to a question about Lithuanian time-wasting in the second half.

    "Some good performances tonight... some brave performances."

    Strachan also praises striker Chris Martin for an "outstanding" display. Scotland were unlucky not to win the game, the manager adds.

  6. 'It might be a good point' - Strachan

    Scotland manager Gordon Strachan says the first half was like a game in the English Championship.

    The second half, he says, was much better. He congratulates his side for scoring the equaliser.

    "It might be a good point in the end," Strachan adds.

  9. Slovenia 1-0 Slovakia

    BBC Sport Scotland in Slovenia

    A deserved win for the Slovenians against a poor Slovakia outfit. If Scotland are to take any solace from this evening's proceedings perhaps some can be derived from the Slovakian performance here in Ljubljana. That said, it makes victory in Trnava all the more vital for the home side, which might work against the Scots, themselves desperate for a win.
