Aaron Ramsey captains a Wales team missing Ashley Williams, Gareth Bale, Ben Davies and Joe Allen in their World Cup qualifier against Macedonia at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will captain an injury-depleted Wales tonight in their World Cup qualifier against Macedonia at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Usual skipper Ashley Williams, Ben Davies, Joe Ledley, Sam Vokes, Joe Allen and the world's most expensive player, Gareth Bale are all unavailable to under-pressure manager Chris Coleman.

Wayne Hennessey is fit again, though, and returns in place of Boaz Myhill in goal, with Neil Taylor asked to play at right-back to allow Chris Gunter to partner James Collins in central defence.

Craig Bellamy will represent his country for the final time on Welsh soil, and will operate on the left flank. Along with Hal Robson-Kanu, he will attempt to provide support for lone striker Simon Church.

Napoli forward Goran Pandev, who has scored 26 goals in 74 international appearances, will be the focal point of a Macedonia attack that also includes Cagliari frontman Agim Ibraimi.

Wales: Hennessey; Taylor, Gunter, Collins, John; Ramsey, Vaughan, King; Robson-Kanu, Bellamy, Church

Macedonia: Pacovski; Ristovski, Alioski, Noveski, Sikov; Stjepanovic, Demiri, Rangjelovic, Ibraimi; Pandev, Ivanovski
