STEVIE CRAWFORD expects to have Owain Fon Williams and Lewis Mayo available for Friday night's game with Hearts following their international involvement.

Goalkeeper Fon Williams, 33, is with the Wales squad as they prepare for their final Nations League match with Finland tonight (Wednesday), while Mayo, 20, has been part of Scotland's under-21 pool for European Championship qualifiers.

Fon Williams, recalled for his country for the first time since 2017, was on the bench for Sunday's 1-0 win over the Republic of Ireland, having not been involved in a scoreless draw with the United States last Thursday.

On-loan Rangers defender Mayo was on the bench for Scotland's 2-2 draw at home to Croatia on Thursday, and was so again yesterday (Tuesday) in their 1-0 defeat in Greece.

That result saw the Scots miss out on the tournament, when a win would have sent them through, and Mayo was an unused substitute in both games.

Speaking on Monday, Crawford said: "I've kept in touch with both Owain and Lewis Mayo. 

"Lewis never started, he was on the bench when they drew 2-2 on Thursday. They're away to Greece so we'll just have to keep an eye on that and see where Lewis is at, but Owain, I think I'm right in saying, never got stripped in the first game against the USA, but at the weekend there I think he was on the bench.

"Owain will come back and, listen, he's an experienced guy that, depending on what time he gets home to Scotland on the Wednesday night, or whether he ends up staying down to get a decent sleep, that's something I've spoken about with him. He knows how he's to prepare for Friday night to give himself the opportunity to play."

Fon Williams' involvement with Wales gave Cammy Gill the opportunity to play on Saturday against Clyde - with Crawford declaring himself pleased with his display - and praised the work both keepers had put in last week.

He continued: "It was great Owain's went away on international duty but Owain's got a dual role at the club at the moment, so the big man has been sending his sessions back to us.

"Cammy's taken the responsibility of taking himself and the young goalkeepers, so credit to Cammy last week. It wasn't an ideal situation but he remained very focused and it was great the big man was sending the sessions up with what he was trying to do.

"Hopefully he'll come back with some tips for the goalies."
