Scotland midfielder Charlie Adam insists he is not motivated by a sense of injustice for Friday's World Cup qualifier against Wales.

Adam bore the brunt of the criticism when the teams clashed in Cardiff last October as Wales came from behind to win 2-1.

Gareth Bale won and subsequently scored from a penalty to level the match, and the Wales winger then gave Adam the slip to lash home a spectacular winner.

"It's a different game and a different challenge for us, we are ready and hope we can get three points," Adam said.

"I thought we were OK until a certain stage in the game in Wales. We got a disallowed goal that should have been a goal and that changes the game. That was hard for us to take.

"They got a penalty that probably was a penalty and he (Bale) had a wonder strike that went into the top corner, that's what happens."

And Adam believes Scotland are well prepared for the match as they play their first competitive fixture under new boss Gordon Strachan.

The 27-year-old added: "We're in good spirits. Obviously we had a couple of call-offs which is hard but we've brought some good players back into the squad and hopefully we're ready for Friday night.

"We need to attack. We need to go and try to win the game. We're at home. It's going to be a tough match."
