Wales remain in the hunt for an automatic qualifying berth ahead of next summer’s World Cup finals after a nervy 1-0 win over Georgia in Tbilisi.
Without the injured Gareth Bale, the onus was on Aaron Ramsey to provide the experience and creativity in the Welsh side and the Arsenal man impressed throughout.
Picking up his 50th international cap, Ramsey came close to scoring himself on the night, as well as setting up a couple of decent chances for Andy King.
However, the hosts almost opened the scoring themselves through Giorgi Kvilitaia early on.
The visitors finally got the goal their dominance warranted soon after half-time, with Ramsey setting up Tom Lawrence, with the Derby youngster powering home a fine effort from outside the box.
Although ‘keeper Giorgi Loria arguably should have done better.
As the half progressed, Georgia pushed for an equaliser, with Wayne Hennessey forced into a fine save and then Ben Davies making a last-ditch clearance.
However, ultimately the Welsh would see out the game, with the victory keeping them in second spot in Group D, just a point behind leaders Serbia, with a final decisive clash with the Republic of Ireland on Monday.
