Leicester City's Andy King looks to make amends after thrashing

Leicester City's Andy King is determined to make amends for one of the heaviest defeats of his career when he lines up for Wales against Scotland in a vital World Cup qualifier, in Cardiff, tonight.

King was a part of the Wales side that was humiliated 6-1 by Serbia in their last qualifier, a defeat which left them rooted to the bottom of group A. They also lost their opening game to Belgium. The midfielder said they were determined to make up for that defeat against the Scots.

"I don't know where it came from and it was one of those results that will happen once in many years," he said.

"It was unfortunate because we were making big forward strides. Belgium were a strong side and we were down to 10 men after 20 or so minutes.

"We still had chances to get back into the game and we felt positive coming out of that game.

"For that to happen was a massive disappointment and you can't put your finger on why. It was just one of those nights.

"It is down to us now to put that right for the Scotland game. If we can get a positive result then it will put us right back in there, in with a chance in the group, and it would get the feelgood factor going around the camp again."

Although it is an international, the game will have the feel of a domestic derby club game and King said he is relishing the occasion.

"It is a nice one for us," he said. "The rivalry is there already and a lot of the players will know each other from playing in the league.

"We are confident we can come out on top.

"The last time we played Scotland, in Cardiff, we had a brilliant result so if we can replicate that it would be brilliant."

City's Anthony Knockaert is also in action tonight, for France under-21s against Norway.
