Midfielder Steven Davis wants Northern Ireland to finish their World Cup qualifying campaign with a win.

Northern Ireland travel to Prague to face Czech Republic on Wednesday, knowing that their hopes of qualifying for South Africa are all but over.

Second-placed Slovenia only need a point against group minnows San Marino to end Northern Ireland's chances, but Davis still wants to put on a show for the travelling fans.

"The higher up the table we finish the better it will be for our seeding at the draw for the Euros (2012 qualifiers)," he said.

"It definitely helps your cause and I think we have seen proof of that in the last two campaigns.

"There is of course a very slim chance we could finish second best but it looks dead in the water.

"But that will not stop us going out on a high. None of us want to repeat the feelings we had after the Slovakia match. The best way to get that out of our minds is to get a good result in Prague.

"The Czechs have really improved as the campaign has gone on and they also have something to play for in front of their own crowd."

Nigel Worthington's squad has been decimated by eight withdrawals for the Group 3 clash, with Manchester United defender Jonny Evans the latest to pull out.
