Rovers have three players hoping for match action this Tuesday evening.

Jordan Rhodes, Grant Hanley and Simon Vukcevic will be hoping to add to their cap count for their respective countries as the second round of World Cup 2014 qualifiers take place this evening.

Fresh from earning his third cap for Scotland on Saturday, Jordan Rhodes will be looking to make an impression once more when the Scots take on Macedonia at Hampden.

Rhodes featured for the last nine minutes in Saturday's draw with Serbia, and although there has been repeated calls for the 22-year-old striker to start in Glasgow this Tuesday night, the Rovers record-signing is likely to have to settle for a starting berth on the bench once more.

Defender Grant Hanley is also with Craig Levein's squad and after being an unused substitute at the weekend he is expected to be named amongst the subs again.

Simon Vukcevic's Montenegro will be looking to build on their opening day draw with Poland when they face San Marino this evening.

The Rovers man played three-quarters of the match against the Poles in Podgorica in their 2-2 draw on Saturday and will be expecting more match time in Serravalle.
