Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis has called on his teammates to rise to the challenge against Bosnia tonight.

The Green and White Army remain pointless in their UEFA Nations League campaign after their 1-0 defeat to Austria last Friday.

And Davis’ side face a daunting trip to Sarajevo where they come up against a Bosnia team who are yet to drop any points.

But the Saints midfielder is remaining optimistic, despite Friday’s defeat.

Davis said: “The most important thing is to pick ourselves up in the two games left.

"Bosnia have put themselves in a strong position, but we showed a doggedness in Austria, even when we were under the cosh and we can use that looking forward.

"We want to bring what we did in the other game (against Bosnia) in September, but it's obviously a different kettle of fish away from home.

"We can't go gung-ho. We have to get the balance right and stay in the game.

"It's always difficult coming away from home and hopefully it stands us in good stead in terms of thinking about the level you have to perform at."
