Scotland assistant manager Terry Butcher has confirmed defenders Stephen McManus and Alan Hutton may start this week's World Cup qualifier against Iceland - but ruled midfielder Kris Commons out of the match.
After the 3-0 defeat in Holland on Saturday, George Burley's side are desperate to get a victory over Iceland on Wednesday and will be boosted by the availability of two key players.
However, the continued absence of winger Commons - who returned to his club for treatment to a calf injury before the Holland match and had still been hoping to face Iceland - is a blow to a squad already depleted by injuries.
Celtic captain McManus missed Saturday's match with an ankle injury, while Hutton returned from a long-term foot problem as a second-half substitute in Amsterdam.
"Stephen McManus is back with us and very keen to play. We are very optimistic he will take part in training, so that's a big plus as well," said Butcher.
"He shows the great spirit we have here. We are all determined to get the three points on Wednesday."
Of Hutton, Butcher said: "It was great seeing him back on Saturday. He felt the effects of the 30 minutes of the game he played. It was a very fast tempo against a very good Dutch side, but he thoroughly enjoyed it.
"The work done on Saturday and the work done since then puts him in the frame for a starting place against Iceland."
Butcher had to deliver a less positive assessment on Commons, however.
"He won't be fit. He's not really taken part in any competitive football at Derby. He has been recovering from a calf injury - he tried to step it up on Friday but had a reaction over the weekend.
"The game has just come too quickly for him. It's a shame, because he had a particularly good debut against Iceland all those months ago."
Butcher believes it is vital the side improve their defending at set-pieces, after being caught out by the Dutch.
"It was particularly disappointing to concede that second goal," he said.
"We know what we have to do. Set-pieces could be a big factor on Wednesday, and we are working on that.
"We have to have that awareness - and we will need that on Wednesday."
