Ledley and Hennessey Bring More Joy To Wales

14 October 2014

Eagles pair Joe Ledley and Wayne Hennessey helped Wales to continue their unbeaten start to the Euro 2016 qualification campaign by helping their team to a gritty 2-1 win against Cyprus.

Both men played the full 90 minutes as Chris Coleman's side moved to the top of the group ahead of a crunch game against Belgium next month.

David Cotterill gave the hosts the lead in Cardiff before Hal Robson-Kanu doubled the advantage, and although Cyprus pulled a goal back and Andy King was sent-off for Wales early in the second-half, the Red Dragons clung on to a potentially priceless three points.

Palace's Jonny Williams was also named on the bench but was never going to feature having hurt his ankle in the draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Friday night.

Tonight sees more Eagles in international action, with James McArthur and Barry Bannan hoping to feature for Scotland as they take on Group A pacesetters Poland in Warsaw, and elsewhere in the group Kevin Doyle's Republic of Ireland head to Germany looking to spring a surprise.

Also Mile Jedinak is also set to skipper the Socceroos in Doha as Australia take on Qatar in friendly action.
