Wales have class to take down Georgia
Wales take on Georgia in a vital World Cup qualifier on Friday and should have enough to win despite the absence of Gareth Bale.

Having endured a tough start to qualifying, the Dragons have now rallied and have their fate in their own hands.

It is unlikely that they will catch Group D table-toppers Serbia but second spot is very much up for grabs, as they currently occupy the position on 14 points.

The Republic of Ireland are the only side that can catch them and the two meet next week in what is likely to be a winner-takes-all affair for the play-offs, but before then Chris Coleman’s men must take care of business against Georgia.

The first match between the nations ended up as a 1-1 draw in Cardiff on October 9 last year after Bale’s opener was cancelled out by Tornike Okriashvili.

It was the second in a sequence of five draws for the men in red which threatened to scupper their hopes of making the 2018 World Cup.

However, wins over Austria and Moldova, coupled with a dip in results for Ireland, means that it is now game on for Russia.

There is no doubt that losing Bale will have an influence given he is the one player in the Welsh ranks who can turn a game on his own.

He has top-scored for Wales during qualification with four goals while Joe Allen and Aaron Ramsey both have two, and Wales can be backed at n/a to win, with Georgia on offer at n/a.

Liverpool youngster Ben Woodburn was the star against Austria, netting a late winner, and it may well be that Coleman turns to the 17-year-old once again in the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena. He has shown a maturity beyond his years and is likely to start on the bench in Tbilisi.

Hal Robson-Kanu and Ramsay scored the goals last time out against Moldova to ensure Wales have a chance of making the play-offs and the duo will be vital if the Euro 2016 semi-finalists are to get the win they crave.

It may be that just one goal is needed as Wales have conceded only five in eight games to date and Georgia have scored just eight, with Ashley Williams the anchor at the back.

There is sure to be a hostile atmosphere in Georgia and it will be the way that the players cope that will determine if they come away with the spoils.

There is plenty of experience in the Wales side and, with the carrot of another major tournament, they should take all three points on Friday to give themselves a major boost for the Ireland encounter.
