Joe Ledley will miss Wales' opening World Cup qualifiers with Belgium and Serbia through injury, but there is a place for West Ham defender James Collins.

Ledley picked up a groin problem in Celtic's Champions League qualifying win over Helsingborg last weekend and will miss the clashes in Cardiff and Novi Sad.

He joins Sunderland's David Vaughan on the sidelines with uncapped Crystal Palace midfielder Jonathan Williams and Leicester's Andy King coming into the 23-man panel.
