The pair have been drafted in after James Forrest of Celtic and Birmingham's Chris Burke pulled out through injury.

Forrest was forced off the park towards the end of Celtic's 4-1 victory over Ross County last Saturday while Burke picked up an ankle injury against Huddersfield on the same day.

Conway, a regular in Brighton's side this season following his loan move from Cardiff, has been capped five times, the last when coming on as a substitute towards the end of Scotland's 3-2 defeat by England at Wembley in August.

Mackay-Steven, who scored one goal in three Scotland U21 appearances, has yet to make his full international debut despite being included in several squads since breaking into the Dundee United first team.

Robert Snodgrass and Steven Fletcher did not train with the rest of the squad on Tuesday morning but are expected to take part on Wednesday.

Coach Mark McGhee said: "Snodgrass had taken a blow on his nose and Fletcher has a programme that he's working to in his recovery period coming out of the injury he had.

"We are respectful of that. Both will train tomorrow."

Scotland take on the States at Hampden on Friday before heading to Oslo to face the Norwegians at the Aker Stadion in Molde on November 19.

You can watch Scotland take on the United States live on Sky Sports 2 from 7.30pm this Friday

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
