Johnson was rested as a precaution for the 8-0 drubbing of San Marino on Friday, with Tottenham defender Kyle Walker replacing him at right-back.

But Johnson looks likely to feature in Podgorica, even if he requires a pain-killing injection to help ease a long-standing toe problem that has flared up again.

"In the Euros he had a slight toe problem which we had to look after," said Hodgson. "All of a sudden it has occurred, although not to the same extent.

"There is no doubt he could have played (against San Marino). We could even have had him on the bench.

"But it would have meant an injection and I preferred to continue the treatment so he didn't have to put a boot on.

"We hope it will get better in the next couple of days. If it doesn't it might need an injection but there is no problem.

"It was just a precautionary measure because I felt we had enough players without taking any unnecessary risks."
