Depth impresses Strachan

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan has lauded his side's attacking efforts in the win over Estonia, with his forwards showing encouraging signs ahead of next month's World Cup qualifiers.

Strachan employed a 4-2-3-1 formation in the first half, with Steven Naismith, Shaun Maloney and Chris Burke providing regular service to Steven Fletcher and the training-ground move from Charlie Adam's free kick, which resulted in the opening goal, pleased the Scotland boss.

"There were things we wanted to do and to a certain extent we did it," he said. "We wanted to get players playing between lines, being brave enough to put it in there. Sometimes we were brave enough, and then when we got between lines, we had to go and eliminate people.

"We did that at certain times, we got free-kicks, and I asked players to take people on. But there's a point where if you can't go through there, the players have got to go somewhere else and change it. Once we get to do that properly then we will be fine."

Strachan, who is yet to take charge of a competitive match for Scotland, was impressed by a number of inexperienced players and is buoyed by the depth in his side.

"I liked some individual performances, the two midfield players that went on in the second half (James McArthur and James Morrison) were terrific," he said. "Burke, terrific. (Robert) Snodgrass had a hard act to follow, he comes on and does well. That's what I wanted, people to take people on. We got that.

"The two centre-halves (Andy Webster and Christophe Berra) had to put up with a lot coming at them, nothing too dangerous, but they dealt with it nice and tidy. Because even then to pass it at the back wasn't easy.

"There are combinations that I thought 'that's good', combinations that we need to work on, and combinations that I thought 'nah, that's not so great'. ''It was good your first game is a friendly and you can have a look at a couple of things."
