Joe Love, pictured, kept Scotland Women on track to claim a place in the Euro 2017 finals after an away win against Belarus.

Anna Signeul’s Scots dominated proceeding­s in Minsk.

However, they failed to add to Love’s back-post header, which came after 15 minutes.

It was a welcome win for the Scots, who had lost their perfect qualifying record in Friday’s 4-0 home defeat by Iceland on Friday.

Belarus goalkeeper Nataliya Voskobovic­h was in good form and helped ensure there was no repeat of the six-goal collapse experience­d by her side in Motherwell.

Scotland team: Fay, Dieke, Love, Lauder, Little, Weir, Evans, J Ross, Corsie, Beattie, Smith. Subs: Lynn, Ness, L Ross, Crichton, C Murray, Cuthbert, J Murray.
