Scotland Under-20 coach Eamon John insists his side will respect but not fear England ahead of their RBS 6 Nations clash in Glasgow on Friday.
John’s men have twice made history in 2010, drawing 8-8 with France to become the first Scotland side at under-20 level not to lose to Les Bleus before securing a maiden away victory at this age grade with a dramatic 16-18 victory over Italy.
Those results came either side of a 20-12 loss to Wales at Cardiff Arms Park but leave Scotland in with a chance of landing the Championship should they stun England.
England’s 25-10 reverse against Ireland, following victories over Wales and Italy ended their Grand Slam hopes although the Championship remains up for grabs with Ireland, England and Wales locked on four points.
But with one defeat already on their record, John his adamant his side can give the Under-20 World Cup finalists a run for their money.
"England will be smarting over their Ireland result and have had a mixed campaign with a variety of players available at different times in the competition but when they have their top players on the field like they did against Wales they ran in five second-half tries,” he said.
"Any team in any sport is always beatable. It's up to us to get it right. We respect England who will have players with Under-20 World Cup final experience - but we're going to go out there to do a job on them and make life uncomfortable in Glasgow.
"I hope we get a good support at the Scotland v England game - the support we've had so far has been fantastic and I'm looking forward to playing in front of a big, noisy and patriotic crowd."
Scotland have made just one change to the side that beat Italy with Leeds Carnegie scrum half Alex Black replacing Caithness’ Kris Hamilton who returns to the bench.
