I really like the hosts getting a two goal start. Serbia will have to score three in order for us to lose this bet and I feel that is unlikely, despite the Isanders still being regarded in some quarters as "whipping boys".

The Faroes have tightened up considerably this campaign, drew 1-1 here with Austria and lost by the minimum margin to Romania, both games were 0-0 at the break. They lost 2-0 in the reverse fixture in Belgrade but the first goal took 30 minutes to come and was from a defensive error, the second not until the final two minutes of the game, their other away start was a 1-0 loss in Lithuania.

Former Irish boss Brian Kerr has taken charge of the team and has spent quite a bit of time with the players over his two month period at the helm, he will ceratinly have them well organised at the back. They will take great heart from the U21 team beating Russia last night and I feel that Serbia, who are missing Vidic, Jankovic and Stankovic, the trio have 150 caps between them, will be happy to just record the win and preserve their lead at the top of the table.

Also going to suggest a little on the double result ,given that the Faroes have not conceded until after the break in the previous two home group games and it will provide some very nice "cover", if they can once again go in level at half time.

Weather update: Quite high winds are forecast for later in the day (surprise, surprise), which will obviously favour the Islanders.

7 points Faroe Islands +2 goals 2.07 asian line.

2 points draw half time-Serbia full time 5.50 general quote..... a little 5.70 on the exchanges.

Good Luck.
