Hibernian defender Ryan Porteous has been called up to the Scotland squad after Steve Clarke was hit by a host of call offs.
The 20-year-old centre half has been promoted from the Under-21 squad for the double-header against Cyprus and Kazakhstan.
Celtic winger Lewis Morgan and Graeme Shinnie of Derby were also called up after several withdrawals from the original squad including captain Andrew Robertson and Leeds United defender Liam Cooper.

Tennis star Andy Murray congratulated Porteous on the call up.
The former world number one wrote on Facebook: "Great news. Congratulations Ryan on your first senior call up to the Scotland squad."
