Rangers' Steven Davis believes his side are in good shape to take all three points against Valencia in their crucial UEFA Champions League fixture.
The Scottish club will host their opponents at Ibrox, in a game that could shape the remainder of their group stage campaign.
Davis and his team-mates are aware of the fixture's significance, whilst the midfielder also admitted his side will have to be at their best to claim the three points.
"Your home games are the games which will get you through and we have managed to beat Bursaspor," Davis said.
"So this game is a massive one in terms of where we are going to go in this group.
"You want to get as many points on board as soon as possible and so far we have done well but that will mean nothing unless we build on that, and so it is important to get a result tomorrow night.
"We know what we are up against and we will have to be at our best."
Rangers had a torrid time in the Champions League last season, losing all three of their home fixtures, however Davis believes that the team have grown from that experience.
"It has been a learning curve for many of us," he added.
"Last year was the first Champions League experience for many of us and we were probably naïve in the way we went about it.
"We seen the group and we were optimistic to begin with but we were probably naïve and we were punished for the mistakes we made.
"Last year we probably tried to do too much (attacking) and we got punished for it.
"So far we have learned from that but it remains to be seen if we can continue that and get a good result tomorrow night."
