Scotland captain Darren Fletcher will miss Saturday's European Championship qualifier against Liechtenstein because of illness.

The Manchester United midfielder has tonsillitis and has not joined up with the squad, although Scotland manager Craig Levein expects the player to be available for the team's final Group I game against Spain on Tuesday.

Scotland is third in the group, two points behind second-place Czech Republic, which also has two matches remaining.

Whichever team finishes second will take part in a two-legged playoff to reach next year's finals in Poland and Ukraine.
