Defender Gordon Greer says his fellow Scotland team-mates do not feel any extra pressure to score lots of goals against Gibraltar in the Euro 2016 qualifier at Hampden Park.

But Brighton player Greer, 34, says Sunday's opponents will be "no mugs".

"We're just hoping that we go out and put a good performance in. If we do that, I'm sure we'll get the result we want," said Greer.

"Ultimately, it's all about just winning the game," he added.

"The pressure on us now is to go and break them down and score the goals because other teams have done that.

"It'd be great in front of the home fans to score a lot of goals and be comfortable."

Greer added that a colleague at Brighton had given him an insight into their opponents.

"We've got an analyst who works with Brighton who's from Gibraltar so he's been filling us in," he said.

"He's always talking about Gibraltar and he's got a few friends who play with the team as well."

Greer said that Scotland's 1-0 win over Northern Ireland in Wednesday night's friendly was a good test for the side going into the Gibraltar game.

Group D as it stands

"Obviously, they've played against some good opposition," he added. "In the Germany game, they put men behind the ball, the same with Ireland and Poland. I think it'll be much the same."

Greer also outlined what he's hoping for from the Republic of Ireland's meeting with Poland in Dublin on Sunday evening.

"When you look at the table, a draw would be an all right result for us," he added.
