Fraser Fyvie: Impressive performance for Scotland U21

Wigan's Fraser Fyvie, Stuart Armstrong of Dundee United and Partick Thistle's Stuart Bannigan all caught Stark's eye as his side made a winning start to their UEFA U21 Championship Group Three qualifying campaign.

Stark said: "Fraser is a confident boy. He is a type of midfield player that is prevalent in the modern game. He takes things, keeps the ball moving and gets us going.

"We had a lot of good performers. I thought Armstrong was a class act in the middle of the park and Stuart Bannigan got about his midfield work and helped us to get a foothold in the game and control it.

"We started off a bit nervously but recovered well and played some really nice football and did the damage.

"To get the goal before half-time was a great boost and I'm absolutely more than satisfied by the start to the campaign."
