David Vaughan: Injury blow

The Sunderland midfielder has featured in Wales' last two Group A fixtures - a 2-1 triumph over the Scots in Cardiff on October 12 and the 2-0 defeat in Croatia four days later.

He will miss the reverse against Gordon Strachan's men at Hampden Park but the Football Association of Wales confirmed the 30-year-old will rejoin the squad before next week's encounter with Croatia at Swansea's Liberty Stadium.

Vaughan's withdrawal gives Coleman yet another selection headache after Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen and Leeds striker Steve Morison were ruled out over the weekend.

Star man Gareth Bale suffered an ankle knock in Tottenham's 1-0 defeat against Fulham on Sunday, although it is believed there are no doubts the 23-year-old will be available for the 'Battle of Britain' clash.

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
