Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday's World Cup qualifier in Warsaw between Poland and England.

England face one of their toughest tests in World Cup qualifying so far on Tuesday when they travel to Warsaw to face Poland.

Roy Hodgson's men went to the top of Group H on Friday thanks to an emphatic 5-0 victory over San Marino at Wembley Stadium.

However, they are likely to face more resistance in the Stadion Narodowy as they meet a team who are three points behind them with a game in hand.

The Three Lions welcome back Glen Johnson and Steven Gerrard from suspension, while Joleon Lescott, James Milner and Jermain Defoe are all expected to return the side after being rested last week.

Chelsea duo Frank Lampard and Ryan Bertrand are still missing through injury.

Poland were recently dealt a blow with the news that captain Jakub Blaszczykowski would be missing for up to six weeks with an ankle problem.

Current form:

Poland: DLLDWW
England: WLWWDW

Possible lineups:

Poland: Tyton; Perquis, Wasilewski, Wojtkowiak, Wawrzyniak; Borysiuk, Mierzejewski, Krychowiak, Wszolek; Lewandowski, Piech

England: Hart; Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Cole; Milner, Carrick, Gerrard, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Defoe, Rooney

Sports Mole says: 1-2
