Scotland midfielder Barry Robson has described Saturday's World Cup qualifier with Norway as a must-win encounter for both sides.
The two sides lock horns at Hampden Park, live on Sky Sports 1 and HD 1, with both teams hoping to boost their World Cup aspirations.
Scotland have three points from two games in Group 9, while Norway drew their only game to date.
And Celtic midfielder Robson is expecting a tough test against the Norwegians.
"Norway are a decent football nation and they have got some very good players," Robson told Sky Sports News.
"It is a massive game for them as well, they need to stay in it as well and if we lose it is not going to be too hot for us either.
"I think it will be two teams going gung-ho, right out for it as we both need the three points so it should make for a special game."
Robson believes the mood in the squad is good despite the loss of some key stars including Kenny Miller, Kevin Thomson and Kris Commons.
"It does not matter if it is club or international, it is a squad game nowadays and you need as many fit players as you can and options on the bench," added Robson.
"You need guys to come in and do the business, it is a squad game and we have a good squad with good spirit.
"It is disappointing we have lost Kenny and the other guys. We need everyone we can get and it is disappointing."
