Chris Brunt insists that Northern Ireland's performance against Russia on Friday night is equally important as the result.

Northern Ireland midfielder Chris Brunt has admitted that the team's focus is on a "positive performance" when they face Russia on Friday.

Russia are odds-on favourites to win the match in Moscow, and while Brunt has acknowledged the task his team are faced with, he believes that a positive display would set them up for their home match with Luxembourg on Tuesday night.

Brunt said: "We want to get a positive performance in Moscow. Russia is a difficult place to get a result, but our focus is on a positive performance," he said.

"We need a good performance going into Tuesday against Luxembourg. Home games are crucial in qualifying campaigns and this one will be no different."

The 27-year-old has scored one goal in 36 appearances for Northern Ireland.
