Wales boss Chris Coleman selects both Tom Lawrence and Sam Vokes in the starting lineup for the World Cup qualifier in Georgia.

Wales boss Chris Coleman has selected both Tom Lawrence and Sam Vokes in the starting lineup for the World Cup qualifier in Georgia.

Ben Woodburn and Hal Robson-Kanu had been in contention to start in Friday's game after their match-winning contributions in September, but Coleman has opted to keep the pair on the bench.

In the absence of Gareth Bale through injury, Coleman appears to have gone with a 4-3-2-1 formation with Aaron Ramsey - who is earning his 50th cap - supporting Lawrence and Vokes, and Joe Ledley coming back into the midfield to partner Andy King and Joe Allen.

Chris Gunter, James Chester, Ashley Williams and Ben Davies make up the back four, with Neil Taylor having to make do with a place among the replacements.

Georgia are without key midfielder Tornike Okriashvili, who scored in the reverse fixture between the two sides at the start of the qualifying campaign.

Georgia: Loria; Kakabadze, Kverkvelia, Kashia, Navalovski, Kvekveskiri, Merebashvili, Kankava, Gvilia, Qazaishvili, Kvilitaia
Subs: Makaridze, Lobzhanidze, Khotcholava, Kiteishvili, Dvalishvili, Chanturia, Kvaskhvadze, Dvali, Hufnagel, Skhirtladze, Aburjania, Jigarui

Wales: Hennessey; Gunter, Chester, A.Williams, Davies; Ledley, Allen, King, Ramsey, Lawrence; Vokes
Subs: Maxwell, Ward, Ampadu, Lockyer, Taylor, Edwards, J.Williams, Brooks, Woodburn, Hedges, Robson-Kanu, Bradshaw
