The Rangers striker will begin the match on the bench after boss Craig Levein named the team he hopes to field.
Ibrox team-mate Kenny Miller will lead the attack, while James McFadden and Lee Wallace have both been named in the team despite struggling with injury.
If they fail to prove their fitness on Wednesday morning, Dundee United's Paul Dixon will make his debut at left-back, while Graham Dorrans will replace McFadden.
At the back, Andy Webster earns his first cap in four years when he partners Gary Caldwell in the heart of defence.
Scotland team to face Czech Republic at Hampden (kick-off 8pm): Gordon, Hutton, Caldwell, Webster, Wallace, Robson, Brown, D Fletcher, Thomson, McFadden, Miller.
