England must perform against Montenegro - Hart

The Manchester City No. 1 knows just how significant Tuesday's game will be and insists that the Three Lions will not repeat any mistakes from their last visit to Podgorica
Joe Hart has told his England teammates that they have "got to perform" ahead of their World Cup 2014 qualifier in Montenegro.

The Three Lions currently sit two points adrift of their opponents on Tuesday, who lead Group H having won four and drawn one of their five games played.

Both parties were in action on Friday and both took three points from their respective fixtures - Roy Hodgson’s men ran out 8-0 winners in San Marino, while Montenegro talisman Mirko Vucinic gave his side a narrow 1-0 victory in Moldova to keep it ahead of the chasing pack.

Hart is certain that no such mistakes will be repeated on this occasion, telling reporters: "Tuesday is big, an exciting game for us. We've got to perform.

"Maybe we could be accused of taking our foot off the pedal as we let a 2-0 advantage slip away last time against them when we needed just a point. That is not going to be the case this time. We've got a job on our hands in an intimidating arena, but we've definitely got the capabilities.

"We go there with the intention of doing well against a good nation.”

Another Manchester City player, James Milner, is relishing the intimidating atmosphere that will greet England when the team walks out at the Podgorica City Stadium.

The former Aston Villa man added: "These are the sort of games you enjoy playing in, with the crowd on your back, and when you are getting a lot of stick. We will know it well from having been there before. It will be tough.

"It is never easy qualifying for a major tournament. We know Montenegro are a good team and they showed that in their qualifying campaign but we are thinking positively.”
