Jordan Preston could pull on the navy of Scotland this evening when the Scottish Under-19s face Iceland in an international challenge match.

The young centre forward, who will be hoping to follow the career path of his namesake Jordan Rhodes, has been named in Ricky Sbragia's squad for the friendly at the Forthbank Stadium, Stirling.

The Academy striker has had a strong start to the 2013-14 campaign, making four appearances for Eric Kinder's Under-21 side, whilst scoring four goals for the Under-18s, so he'll be looking to take that form onto the international stage.

Meanwhile an ankle injury will prevent Tim Payne from representing New Zealand in the OSN Cup in Saudi Arabia. The Rovers midfielder picked up the injury last Monday for the Under-21s against Arsenal.
