Wales stand on the brink of football history this week, with Chris Gunter admitting the pain of the past has driven them on in Euro 2016 qualifying.

Chris Coleman's side need only a point from their final two games, away to Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday and at home to Andorra on Tuesday, but the 61-times capped Gunter says there have been too many near-misses in the past to take qualification for granted.

This week feels different for some people looking in, but the routine is the same every time.

We prepare the exact same way whether top or bottom of the group and we are not thinking beyond Saturday.

We know the potential is there to get the job done on Saturday and then we'll look forward to Tuesday on Sunday morning.

That's the aim for us and the focus of the week, because when we've had two games we haven't thought about the second one.

– Chris Gunter, Wales defender
