Women's World Cup: Jo Love returns for Scotland qualifiers

Scotland midfielder Jo Love

Jo Love returns from injury to replace Glasgow City team-mate Nichola Docherty in the Scotland squad for their Women's World Cup qualifying double-header.

The midfield switch is the only change to Anna Signeul's squad for matches at home to Northern Ireland on 26 October and in Poland five days later.

While Northern Ireland visit Fir Park, Bosnia-Herzegovina host Sweden, who then are visited by the Faroe Islands.

Scotland top Group 4 with maximum points after two wins.

However, top seeds Sweden have played only once, beating Poland 2-0 at home.

Signuel's side started off with a 7-2 win in the Faroe Islands then hammered Bosnia-Herzegovina 7-0, also at Fir Park.

The visit to Motherwell's ground will be Northern Ireland's opening fixture of the campaign, while Poland have already thumped the Faroe Islands 6-0 at home as well as losing to the Swedes.
