Anna Signeul has made only one change to her experienced squad for Scotland women's Euro 2017 qualifiers against Belarus and Macedonia.

Hibernian's Chloe Arthur is added to the squad that won Scotland's Group One opener 3-0 in Slovenia last month, with Arsenal's Emma Mitchell out injured.

Kim Little, who scored a hat-trick in that match, is one of five players with more than 100 caps.

The Belarus match at Fir Park on 23 October will be shown live on BBC Alba.

Belarus lost their first group game 2-0 away to top seeds Iceland, while it will be Macedonia's opening qualifier.

Ifeoma Dieke, Joanne Love, Leanne Ross and captain Gemma Fay are the other players with more than 100 appearances, while Jennifer Beattie is on 96 and Rachel Corsie and Frankie Brown have made 77 and 73 appearances respectively.

Scotland are chasing a spot at a major tournament for the first time.

The eight group winners and six best runners-up will qualify for the finals in the Netherlands, with the two other group runners-up contesting a play-off.
