Fans Will Make Holl Difference


Byline: EWAN SMITH

KENNY MILLER helped give Scotland's World Cup hopes a shot in the arm then insisted the Tartan Army can help roar them into a play-off spot on Wednesday night.

Miller ran himself into the ground up front as strikes from Scott Brown and James McFadden earned Scotland their crucial 2-0 victory.

The win means George Burley's men have a fighting chance of making the play-offs when Holland come to town, but only if they reproduce the sort of form that saw off the likes of France and Ukraine in the Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.

Miller said: "Wednesday's game is now massive for us. Holland don't need to win but they didn't need to win their last three and still managed to do it.

"They will play the way they always do by getting on the ball a lot and passing it well. They will want to create the chances they did when we lost 3-0 over there.

"But it's not beyond us to win. If we can limit their opportunities, nick a goal and defend like we have in the past we have a chance.

"We have done it against some huge nations - ones that have done well in major tournaments. We have done well against Italy, Ukraine, France and even Holland when we beat them 1-0 six years ago.

"With the crowd right behind us there is no reason why we can't do it again. This squad is better than the one that beat the Dutch in 2003.

"There's no doubt we'll need to ride our luck and limit Holland in front of goal but we can do it."

Miller admits that while George Burley has been singled out for criticism over the way the campaign has gone, the players also have to take their share of the blame.

But he's convinced they can save their manager's skin and pay back the fans for some shoddy performances by seeing off Holland.

Pressure He said: "We have to be positive and believe we can win. We don't just want to do well for the manager though.
