Wales have been dealt a blow ahead of their friendly with Scotland after Craig Bellamy, James Collins and Simon Davies were forced to pull out.
Bellamy is thought to be struggling with a groin injury while Collins [groin] and Davies [foot] are also said to be suffering.
The Welsh Football Association have called-up St Mirren midfielder Andy Dorman, Nottingham Forest striker Robert Earnshaw, Swansea midfielder Joe Allen and Cardiff defender Adam Matthews as replacements.
Manager John Toshack has been bold with his selection with Dorman, Allen and Matthews all yet to appear for the senior side.
In fact Matthews has only represented Wales at Under 17 and Under 19 level having only spent time on the bench for the Under 21s.
Earnshaw on the other hand has plenty of experience with 13 goals from 43 appearances.
Wales will take on Scotland at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.
