Scots call Forbes and Wotherspoon

David Wotherspoon and Ross Forbes
Wotherspoon and Forbes have shown fine form for their clubs this season

Motherwell's Ross Forbes and Hibernian's David Wotherspoon have been handed their maiden call-ups to the Scotland Under-21 squad.

The midfielders have been rewarded for fine, early-season form and could debut in next month's Uefa Under-21 Championship qualifier with Belarus.

Forbes, 20, has scored seven goals this season and was Clydesdale Bank Young Player of the Month for August.

The 19-year-old Wotherspoon made his senior debut for Hibs this season.

He and Forbes are the only additions to the 20-man squad head coach Billy Stark named for last month's Group 10 defeat in Austria.

Scotland play Belarus at St Mirren Park on 10 October.
