Veteran defender David Weir insists the current crop of players are good enough for Scotland to qualify for their first major finals in more than a decade. "There is no doubt there is enough quality," he said.
"You only have to look at the names on the team-sheets and the level they are playing at and the experience they've got to realise there is enough quality.
"It's just a matter of producing it and doing it on a regular basis but I don't think there is any question there is enough quality there."
And he expects Rangers club-mate Kenny Miller to have a big part to play in these two matches, having netted five goals in the Scottish champions' opening three SPL games.
Weir said: "He is very important. He is a proven goalscorer and he has done it for years for Scotland. He has scored a lot of goals and he has contributed a lot.
"You can see how well he has started the season for Rangers, he is in top form. When Kenny Miller is in top form, he is a handful."
