Wales v Austria preview

Uncapped Bristol City defender James Wilson could make his Wales debut in the friendly against Austria in Swansea.

Wilson, 23, was called up by manager Chris Coleman on Tuesday following the withdrawal from the squad of Huddersfield defender Joel Lynch.

Goalkeeper Jason Brown, a free agent after leaving Aberdeen, replaces Lewis Price, who has pulled out for family reasons.

Craig Bellamy is expected to start up front after returning from a lengthy international absence, while midfielder Jack Collison is also back.

Steve Morison, James Collins and Neil Taylor are all sidelined along with goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

However, Coleman can call upon star man Gareth Bale and believes this is the strongest squad he has had at his disposal thus far into his reign.

For Austria, West Ham new-boy Emanuel Pogatetz and Aston Villa striker Andreas Weimann could both feature.

Wales squad:

Goalkeepers: Jason Brown (Free agent), Boaz Myhill (West Brom), Owain Fon Williams (Tranmere).

Defenders: Ashley Williams (Swansea), Jazz Richards (Swansea), Joel Lynch (Huddersfield), Sam Ricketts (Bolton), Chris Gunter (Reading), Adam Matthews (Celtic), Ben Davies (Swansea).

Midfielders: Jack Collison (West Ham), Andy King (Leicester), Joe Allen (Liverpool), Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal), David Vaughan (Sunderland), Joe Ledley (Celtic), Gareth Bale (Tottenham).

Forwards: Hal Robson-Kanu (Reading), Sam Vokes (Burnley), Simon Church (Reading), Craig Bellamy (Cardiff) Craig Davies (Bolton).
