We have to play with a lot of attacking intent & purpose & stamp our authority on the game right from the start.
It's been a very mixed campaign in terms of performances. We have been very ordinary & average at times. Ultimately football comes down to results nowadays & if we get the right result & qualify Monday they will deserve a new contract, if we don't they will have failed.
Crowd will be so important Monday. The atmosphere just a few weeks ago versus Germany was best I've seen in the Aviva. If we recreate that Monday night it will go a long way to helping the team get the right result.
It's a very dangerous scoreline because obviously they have to score. As we are the home team the pressure is now back on us to perform. Hopefully we react positively to that. If we don't and are negative & nervy it could be a long night for us all."
Pjanic& Dzeko will dangerous again so we've got to get to grips with them early doors. They are their best players & if we can keep them quiet we should be ok.
We need to be compact and hard to beat.
We don't have to chase the game but we need to be solid and look like we want to score because the Bosnian centre halves looked slow on Friday night and that's where they are weak.
The fans will be the 12th man in the Aviva, they are always brilliant. They will get behind the boys and the place will be rocking
Hopefully the team will make it a night to remember for the fans, they deserve it!
