Cardiff City midfielder Joe Ledley has accepted defeat in his bid to be fit for Wales duty and will miss out on the World Cup qualifier matches against Finland and Liechtenstein.

Ledley has been doubtful all week with a hip problem but was under consideration given the current injury list which has hampered Toshack’s plans. With Joe now ruled out, the midfield will be depleted further.

Ledley is not in the Cardiff City first team present after being ousted by in-form Irishman Stephen McPhail. However, the injury is not serious and he should be available to face Crystal Palace in 10 days when he is likely to be a substitute.
