Having taken five points from three games last month - including a dramatic last gasp victory over Belarus and two goalless draws against Finland and Estonia - Wales find themselves third in the group.

The Dragons are currently on seven points and are behind their opponents tonight on goal difference only, with runaway group leaders Belgium currently looking untouchable on 16 points.

Their hosts tonight were thrashed 3-0 by Belgium last time out in their World Cup qualifying campaign, while they were also defeated by Wales in their reverse fixture in a match that saw the Czech Republic's star striker, Patrik Schick, sent off and Daniel James score the only goal.
