Northern Ireland captain Aaron Hughes says his side has what it takes to deal with high-pressure games.
Nigel Worthington's team take on Poland in Chorzow on Saturday in a crucial World Cup qualifier and the skipper believes they can improve on their poor away record.
Northern Ireland have won four successive qualifying games, but they have struggled against higher-ranked sides when they play away from home.
But Fulham centre-half Hughes believes his side can overcome the pressure in the Slaski Stadium.
"You know come the match, it will be a big atmosphere," he said. "But we are aware of what is at stake. Most of us are used to dealing with pressure in games. I do not think it will be too much of a problem.
"Slovakia and Slovenia were two hard away games and we got nothing from them. But the back-to-back matches against San Marino came at a good time for us.
"We got a couple of wins and that built some momentum. Then we got two home wins over Poland and Slovenia. We have built up a head of steam and hopefully we can take that form away from home tomorrow.
"It is an important game because when you get to the end of the qualifiers there is less time to make up for any mistakes. But we have prepared for that."
