Scottish referee Kevin Clancy will oversee Lech Poznan’s Champions League clash against FK Sarajevo tonight as former Dundee United defender Barry Douglas aims to progress in Europe.

The Polish champions are 2-0 up following the first leg in Bosnia last week and are expected to progress to the third qualifying stage this evening.

Douglas, 25, will start at full-back for Lech after establishing himself as a pivotal part of last season’s title-winning side – and recently admitted Champions League progression could be key to breaking into the Scotland set-up.

And his compatriots will officiate the encounter, with Clancy taking charge of his second continental fixture of the campaign following Mladost Podgorica’s Europa League qualifier against Neftchi Baku earlier this month.

His assistant referees are Graham Chambers and Frank Connor while Nick Walsh will act as fourth official at the INEA Stadium.
