HUNGARY 0 SCOTLAND 1
Matt Phillips scored his first international goal as Scotland earned their first win of Alex McLeish’s second spell in charge against Hungary.
James Forrest missed two good chances and captain Charlie Mulgrew’s penalty was saved after Ryan Fraser was felled.
But Phillips tapped home Fraser’s cross three minutes into the second half as Scotland sported their new yellow away shirt over the 90 minutes.
Scotland keeper Allan McGregor twice denied Roland Varga and then Adam Szalai after a mistake from Mulgrew as the visitors held on in Budapest.
The win followed a largely lack lustre display on Friday v Costa Rica at Hampden.
