Kenny Miller admits he is enjoying his role as the lone striker in the system adopted by Scotland coach Craig Levein.

The Cardiff City forward has endured some frustrating outings for Scotland in the past when asked to lead the line on his own.

However, during the Scots' 2-1 victory over Denmark at Hampden Park on Wednesday evening, Miller linked up well with the likes of Steven Naismith and James Morrison.

The 31-year-old set up Scotland's winner with an excellent deep cross for Robert Snodgrass to head home just before the interval.

Miller never looked remote from his team-mates but still managed to keep Denmark's last line of defence occupied as he revels in the 4-1-4-1 system employed by Levein with Charlie Adam sitting in midfield.

Creative midfielders such as Barry Bannan, Graham Dorrans and James Forrest came off the bench against the Danes while James McFadden could supplement the ranks soon as he looks for a new club after being released by Birmingham following a season ruined by a knee injury.

Real quality

Miller, who has scored 14 goals in 56 games for his country, said: "The manager has found this system and found the personnel to play within that system and it definitely suits us.

"We have got so many options and they all work hard first and foremost.

"We have now got quality in those positions and don't forget Darren Fletcher is still to come back as well.

"We have got real quality and we can hurt any team from the runs they make."

When asked if he was enjoying his role, Miller said: "Big time. It has been really enjoyable to play in these last four or five internationals.

"I have felt we played some fantastic stuff, created a lot of chances and we are now getting results. Although it was a friendly it was great preparation for next month."

Levein selected Denmark as opponents because of their similarity in standard to the Czech Republic, who visit Hampden on 3rd September before Lithuania complete Scotland's home Euro 2012 qualifying group campaign three days later.
