LYNDON DYKES says that the way the Scotland team reacted as one to a late challenge on Billy Gilmour in their win over Luxembourg shows their togetherness ahead of the European Championships.

Dykes and his fellow Scotland players were immediately on the scene when the home side’s Sebastien Thill went in late on Gilmour with a blatant barge, forcing him from the action after an impressive second-half cameo.

And Dykes says that is a sign of the team spirit that Steve Clarke has forged within the squad.

“I’m not too sure [what happened] but obviously it was a late challenge in the air,” Dykes said. “You saw everyone in the team backing him up as a team.

“It wasn’t a good one to see with him having to go back off. He’s a great player, he’s got a great future and fit straight in.

“He’s done really well and I’m sure he’ll recover quickly. He’ll be raring to go for the next one.”

Dykes was frustrated not to score on the night having squandered numerous chances, but the forward was encouraged by the link-up play between himself and fellow striker Che Adams.

“It was a competitive game,” he said. “We’re disappointed that we didn’t score a few more.

“But it’s been a positive camp and we’re going into the Euros full of confidence. We just have to keep playing well.

“You’re doing something wrong if you’re not getting opportunities. On another day it could have been four or five-nil. But everyone is full of confidence.

“Me and Che did really well today, linking up again. Obviously I got the assist for his goal and he finished the goal well. So you take away positives.

“We also linked up well for the move that led to the red card – and then that changed the game. But we’re just taking all the positives away from it. It’s been a great camp.

“We’re all ready for the first game of the Euros.”
