Paddy Reading hopes Scotland Under-21s can build on their strong start to qualifying for Uefa Euro 2021 as they bid to maintain their 100 per cent start.
Scotland have won both of their opening games in their qualifying campaign for the tournament, overcoming San Marino and pulling off a shock win away to Croatia.
Scot Gemmill's side take on Lithuania on Thursday before heading out to Czech Republic on Monday in their next qualifying fixtures and Reading, who’s got three caps under his belt, hopes they can add another six points and keep their unbeaten start intact.
“It was a good start,” said the young left back.
“We’ve played San Marino, which we were expected to win, we didn’t win by as many goals as we liked but the three points were what was important.
“Going into the Croatia game, we had a game plan to really frustrate them, hit them on the counter attack and the game plan worked perfectly. To get the three points away was a massive win and it’s been a really good start.
“They’re both going to be two different challenges to the first two games. I’m expecting both teams to be pretty good, especially playing out in the Czech Republic.
“Again, we’ll go in with game plans and if we stick to them we’ll be fine and hopefully get another six points.”
The Scots, who sit second in their group on goal difference behind Greece, head to the capital to face Lithuania, with the clash taking place at the home of Heart of Midlothian - Tynecastle.
“It’s definitely going to be a good experience playing there (Tynecastle), the pitch is small now so it’s going to be quite a tight game,” said Reading.
“Playing in big stadiums, I imagine there will be a decent crowd there and it’s going to be good.
“We’ve got a really good chance of qualifying. The win against Croatia was massive because they are favourites to go through and there’s a massive chance to get another six points. If we win four from four games, that puts us in good stead.”
