Edwards back in fold for Wales

Published Add your comment

Wolves midfielder David Edwards is set to feature for the first time under Gary Speed but the Wales manager is without the injured Danny Gabbidon and Robert Earnshaw for their final Euro 2012 qualifiers against Switzerland and Bulgaria.

Edwards has missed the last seven internationals due to a back problem, but recently returned to the starting line-up at Molineux and comes straight into the national squad.

QPR defender Gabbidon is out due to a knee injury picked up in their win over Wolves, while Cardiff striker Earnshaw, whose close-range miss denied Wales a point at Wembley last time out, has a thigh problem.

Despite only picking up their first points of the campaign against Montenegro last month, Wales can still finish in third place in Group G with positive results against the Swiss in Swansea and against Bulgaria in Sofia.
