Billy Stark's side crashed to a 2-1 defeat that was, in truth, flattering to the visitors, with Scotland rarely able to trouble the Georgians. The Scots' party arrived late on the night before the game and had no time to train on the Mikheil Meskhi Stadium pitch after the home side decided to bring the kick-off forward to mid-afternoon due to floodlighting problems. But Jack wasn't in the mood for excuses and admitted the Scots had no complaints about their preparation.
"It was a very tough game," he said. "I don't think we played very well at all compared to how we did on Thursday [against Slovakia]. But there are no excuses, we never turned up to be honest and we're disappointed again. The travelling thing is too easy an excuse. We didn't train after getting to Georgia but you have to deal with that. All the boys felt fine and we'd spoken about that before the game.
"Then we got on to the pitch and it just never worked out, but that's just what can happen in football. We just know we weren't good enough and we just have to take it on the chin. If we'd been here longer maybe the time difference and stuff could have affected us but we stuck to UK time and were still eating at the right times. I don't see there was anything that was different, we just let ourselves down."
The young Scots were on the receiving end of criticism from Stark, who was frustrated that his side hardly kicked a ball until Lewis Macleod's spectacular late volley suddenly jolted them out of their lethargy to mount a fightback, which came to no avail.
"I think it was correct for the manager to give us criticism because we weren't good enough," admitted Jack. "The boys all know that. We deserve criticism when we're bad and when we're good he's the first one to praise us and tell us we played really well. That's just part and parcel of the game, we just need to deal with that. He wasn't really that angry, he just told us we weren't good enough and he's right."
Jack was optimistic that Scotland could still finish in second place behind the Dutch, who seem certain to run away with the group, despite dropping down to fourth place.
"On the day Georgia just turned up and we didn't," he said. "But we'll have our day with them when they come over, then it's the Holland game. If we can win the rest of our games we'll still have a chance. That's the aim now, preparing for them then Holland at home. Two games at home and hopefully we can get six points."
