thumbnail Hello,

The Three Lions host Branko Brnovic's side in a crucial World Cup qualifier, with our tipster backing both teams to find the net at Wembley as they vie for a place in Brazil

With two matches remaining in Group H in the road to Brazil 2014, one point separates the top three sides. England, who top the group by that narrow margin, face Montenegro, who have been on top of the pile for the majority of qualifying. Destiny is in the Three Lions' hands but, with tricky ties against Montenegro then Poland, Ukraine, who sit in second, will be breathing heavily down their necks.

England come into this match after a professional performance away at Ukraine in September. It was a game that neither side could afford to lose, which resulted in a 0-0 draw. Roy Hodgson and his players this week have come out to the media and said that confidence is high in the camp and they have no doubts that they will qualify for the World Cup next year.

The Three Lions have stayed unbeaten throughout this campaign, drawing four and winning four of their matches. Paddy Power price them at 4/11 (1.36) to claim a vital win.

After kicking off their qualifying with a draw and four wins, Montenegro have faltered of late, drawing two of their last three, and losing the other match.

This has handed the advantage over to England with two games remaining. Branko Brnovic's side were heavily beaten by Ukraine at home back in June, a result which severely hampered there qualification hopes, and gave the Yellow-and-Blues a fantastic chance to spoil the party. Paddy Power do not give them much hope against England, pricing them at 8/1 (9.00) to cause an upset. The same firm price the draw at 7/2 (4.50).

Paddy Power have a Money Back Special for this match. If Steven Gerrard scores anytime, they will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast singles on the match.

With England too short to back at 4/11, it's worth looking else where to find a bet that stands out.

The both teams to score selection would be a wise bet when you take into consideration the scoring form and defensive form of these teams. Despite keeping a clean sheet against Moldova in their last home match, England have been far from certain in defence.

This bet, priced at 11/10 (2.10) would have paid out in four of their last six matches at Wembley. When you also consider Montenegro have scored in their last six away games, including goals against Belgium, Ukraine and Poland, you can be sure that they will attack England.
