Led­ley in­sists clear heads will be key

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - THE TITLE -

JOE LED­LEY has called for clear heads as Wales seek to se­cure a 2018 World Cup play-off spot amid the emo­tion of a derby game against Ire­land. With so much on the line, emo­tions will be run­ning high in Cardiff, es­pe­cially as mem­o­ries re­main fresh of their Dublin clash in March. That game was shrouded in con­tro­versy when Ire­land cap­tain Sea­mus Cole­man suf­fered a bro­ken leg in a chal­lenge with Neil Tay­lor, who was sent off in the goal­less draw. ‘We must not get in­volved in any­thing,’ Led­ley said. ‘We need to be clever and we have a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence, so it is down to us. ‘Mon­day will be a bat­tle and they will fight hard, it is al­ways the same in these games. Hope­fully we can do it with one last push.’
