Kyle Lafferty believes Northern Ireland need to be perfect in their next three World Cup qualifiers if they are to reach South Africa in 2010.
Nigel Worthington's side ended their winless streak against international minnows San Marino on Wednesday with a resounding 4-0 success.
Northern Ireland currently trail Group Three leaders Slovakia by five points and Lafferty believes they will need to go on a winning run to get back into contention.
They travel to San Marino in February, but it is the following home games against Poland and Slovenia that Lafferty also wants maximum points from.
"We've got six games left I think we've got the players in the team to go out and win all of those games, home and away," said Lafferty.
"We definitely need to take nine points from out next three games, especially as the Poland and Slovenia games are at home."
