Montenegro remain confident ahead of Friday's World Cup qualifier against England, despite being without captain Mirko Vucinic and three other players through injury.

The visitors have a string of injuries, with striker Mirko Vucinic, goalkeeper Mladen Bozovic, midfielder Miodrag Pekovic and centre back Marko Basa all ruled out.

Manchester City's Stevan Jovetic is also in doubt, as is Miodrag Dzudovic who has a back injury and hamstring strain.

However, Dzudovic remains confidents in his side's ability.

He was quoted on the Metro's website saying: "It seems we always head into decisive matches decimated by injuries and this is just too much bad luck with the most important game of our careers around the corner.

"But when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

"There is no doubt our coach Branko Brnovic will find the right strategy to disguise our chinks and maximise our potential at Wembley."

As it stands, England sit top of the Group H table with 16 points from eight games, one clear of Montenegro and Ukraine, with Poland a further three points behind.

If Montenegro avoid defeat to England, it will put them in good stead to claim a play-off position.

The last three competitive meetings between the two sides produced three draws, and Dzudovic admits there is hard work to be put in.

He said, "Of course we are poised to go for a win against England if given the opportunity because we can’t just roll over and throw away all the good work we have done in the qualifiers so far.

"The most important thing will be to keep a clean sheet and I am sure our forwards will find a way through.

"With the right attitude and enough self-belief, we can finish in the top two and reach the play-offs."

Montenegro face Moldova at home in their last round of matches.
