England are a point clear of Ukraine in Group H and will guarantee qualification if they win at Wembley.
Hodgson says the players know the job is only half done, and he had some harsh words for them after they beat Montenegro, so they know where he stands on the subject.
"Sometimes it is easier to be harsh when people have done well - and I was harsh," said Hodgson of his own reaction to victory over Montenegro.
"I was very keen to point out one or two things to them. It wasn't anything celebratory.
"I will say this until I am blue in the face, but the one thing I want to guard against is complacency.
"I don't imagine there will be any and certainly after the things I said to them they will have a pretty good idea where I stand on the subject."
England's infamous failure to beat Poland in 1973 is very much on the minds of the English public, whilst the defeat by Croatia at Wembley in 2007 that cost England a place at Euro 2008 is also still living in the memory.
Complanency? I'd much prefer it if, Roy makes the players defend against Lewandowski.- cozens
