England coach Roy Hodgson is confident his players won't take Moldova lightly in their World Cup qualifier.

Hodgson's men opened their World Cup qualifying campaign with a five-goal hammering of the Eastern Europeans 12 months ago.

"Moldova also lost in the last minute to a very fortunate goal against Montenegro, otherwise they'd have an even better points tally," said Hodgson.

"I don't think I need to caution the players or guard against complacency and I don't think I've seen any signs of that in the games we've played.

"If I did think any complacency was creeping in I'd be very quick to move in and quash it."
