YOUR STARTING XI FOR THE BIG ONE!

WHAT THEY SAID - JONNY EVANS

"I’m feeling good, shouldn’t be any issues for me going into the game. With a couple of days between games, it’s a quick turnaround.

"It’s a big game ... we’re all looking forward to it. It’s the biggest game we’ve had in quite a while now and hopefully we can come out on top.

"I think over the last number of years you know; we’ve had a lot of big matches and a lot of the squad have been involved in them. Hopefully we can take the experience that we have had from those and come through it. There have been big matches and big occasions where we have come through it and we can take confidence from that.

"We have a routine that we’ve been doing for quite a while, we’ll carry on that routine as it’s brought success in the past. The squad’s been together a long time, so we know how everything works. I think it’s more or less keep everything the same, although I’m sure there will be a few more nerves around the squad but apart from that, everything else is normal.

"It’s massive that the fans will be able to watch for free. In the last game in the Nations League, we had about 600 in the stadium, and it does make a difference. We experienced that in Bosnia; I think they had about 2,000 at that game. It adds a bit of atmosphere and a bit of edge to the game. It’s great to see that everyone around the country will be able to watch it (for free). The fans that will able to get a ticket and get in, I know will support us however they can and make it as loud as they can. Even having their presence in the stadium will spur us on."
