Wales coach John Hartson is confident Gareth Bale and Adam Matthews will both be fit for Friday's World Cup qualifier against Scotland.

Hartson confirmed Tottenham wide man Bale and Celtic defender Matthews - neither of whom had taken part in the Dragons' training session on Tuesday - were nursing heel and ankle problems respectively, but stressed the pair are expected to be available for the Group A clash with the Scots at Cardiff City Stadium.

"Gareth Bale came down to the training ground today and worked with the physio," Hartson said.
