Gary Speed's side lost their opening four matches of Euro 2012 qualifying but finished the campaign strongly and are in good form.

With only a handful of matches before Speed must gather his troops for World Cup 2014 qualification, Egil Olsen's team will provide a tough challenge for a rejuvenated Wales.

Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Craig Bellamy are all expected to start, but a long list of casualties will give certain fringe players the opportunity to prove themselves.

Jack Collison is on the inury list and the West Ham player is joined by James Collins, Danny Collins, David Vaughan and Boaz Myhill.

A packed house is expected at the Cardiff City Stadium and Speed hopes Wales can continue their recent improvement and put on a show.

"In terms of results and performances obviously things have improved recently," he said.

"We know there's a fair way to go and a lot of hard work needed to get where we want to be - and that's ready for the qualifiers next September.

"But we believe we are building some momentum on and off the field and are moving in the right direction.

"Hopefully the fans can come out because we really want to start making our home games count and I think the prices of the tickets give people the chance to come out and support us.

"And, if we can then get people excited about what we're trying to do, we can hopefully keep hold of them come the qualifiers.

"Because we know how important getting big home crowds can be and we want to turn our stadiums into fortresses."

Norway were unlucky to miss out on a play-off place for Euro 2012, finishing third in their group behind Portugal despite finishing on the same points, and Olsen has no major injury worries.
