  • Thanks for tuning in tonight - hope you enjoyed the coverage. See you again soon.

    FT
  • And that's it - all over! Craig Levein must be happy with a decent display and a confidence-boosting result ahead of their 2014 World Cup qualifying matches next month.

    FT
  • Final throw of the dice for Australia with a free kick that neither Neill nor McDonald can turn goalwards.

    90+3
  • Scotland live dangerously as Mulgrew has to be alert to clear Kruse's shot away from trouble following a McDonald pullback.

    90+2
  • Martin sweeps in a terrific right-wing cross and the Australian defence manages to clear at the far post under pressure from McCormack.

    90+1
  • But Wilkshire's set-piece is easily cleared by Scotland who look to break quickly.

    90
  • Australia win a free-kick close to the right touchline as they look to threaten again.

    89
  • Unbelievably, a few supporters cannot seem to put their club allegiances aside as they boo Black when he takes possession for the first time.

    88
  • Ian Black, a former Hearts player now with Rangers, makes his Scotland debut as he replaces skipper Caldwell.

    87
  • McDonald sees a fierce shot blocked on the edge of the area as Australia look for a lifeline.

    86
  • The referee has tried to keep his cards in his pocket but has no choice when Kruse clatters into Martin from behind.

    85
  • Australia make their final change as Archie Thompson, who once scored a record 13 goals for his nation against American Samoa, replaces Brosque.

    84
  • Adam, who has picked himself up, takes the corner and when it comes back to him, fires a curling effort just past the post.

    83
  • A crunching tackle from Jedinak takes out Adam on the edge of the area and McCormack's free-kick is defelcted over for a corner.

    82
  • Adam drives through the centre of the Australian midfield before Maloney releases McCormack whose shot is blocked.

    81
  • And unsurprisingly McGowan is roundly booed by the Hibs fans inside the stadium as he takes his first touch.

    80
  • Hearts midfielder Ryan McGowan makes his Australia debut at Easter Road - the home of fierce rivals Hibernian of course.

    79
  • McCormack was looking to make his mark and he has certainly done that. Picking the ball up 25 yards out from goal, he skips past both Australia central defenders before firing across Federici into the bottom corner. Game over.

    77
  • GOAL! Ross McCormack scores for Scotland!!

    76
  • Snodgrass is hacked down on the right touchline and Caldwell's quick free-kick cannot be controlled by Naismith.
