Scotland stay in contention
 Women's Football News 31 Mar 2010
 
Scotland kept their UEFA Under-19 Championship qualifying hopes alive as they held group hosts Holland to a 0-0 draw.
 
Scotland came close to taking all three points, Rebecca Dempster getting the ball in the net on 62 minutes, but she was flagged for offside.
 
The result leaves both sides level on four points at the top of the table, with Holland just ahead on goal difference. Denmark are also in contention for qualification, just one point off the pace after a 2-1 win over bottom side Finland.
 
Scotland face Finland in their final game on Thursday. The group winners qualify for the finals in FYR Macedonia, with the best runner-up from the six groups also going through.
 
Scotland coach Shelley Kerr said: "The Netherlands are a top side, but in the first half we played some of the best football I've seen this team play. Positions, tactical awareness, everything was spot on.
 
"For most of the game we looked dangerous and more likely to score. Emma Mitchell's deliveries from set pieces were excellent.
 
"The Netherlands became stronger in the second half, and I would say they finished the game on top. We've got Gemma Clark to thank for a couple of world class saves in the last few minutes.
 
"When we had the goal chopped off we lost our focus slightly and it became a bit frantic. Both sides were desperately trying to get something from the game, and I think the Dutch were starting to feel the pressure as they were very much the favourites.
 
"I've said right from the start that every team in this group is capable of taking points from each other. We are right up there with a chance of qualifying, but I think the match between Denmark and The Netherlands on Thursday will be key to deciding the group.
 
"Denmark are very dangerous, and they can absolutely get a result, which would blow the group wide open on the last day.
 
"But all we can do is concentrate on our own game and getting a result against Finland. The spirit in our camp is fantastic, I'm very proud of the way the players have conducted themselves, and I know they'll be focused on Thursday.
 
"Finland are a very physical side, defensively resilient, and difficult to break down. They lost narrowly to Denmark, so we know it will be a tough game for us."
