We know what we have to do.
When the group was drawn and the fixtures were made, many pointed to the last game for both Ireland and Wales - tonight's meeting in Cardiff - as a potential make or break tie in determining who will be going to Russia next summer.
Chris Coleman has named his team, and the only change from the side that defeated Georgia is Hal Robson-Kanu of West Brom who comes in to replace Burnley's Sam Vokes.

Just to be clear:
Ireland will secure a playoff place with a win tonight. Anything less, and it is curtains.
Ireland can also top the group if they win in Cardiff and Georgia beat Serbia in Belgrade, but you do get the feeling we've called in one too many favours from the Georgian lads.
