    I don't understand that table. It shows Wales's form as being five draws, but surely they just won? Ditto not showing Austria as having just lost.

    ETA on the current BBC site it's fixed.

    It's a concern, but I still think three wins from now will ensure a play off place. It would be extraordinarily unlucky if if were not to. It would mean every other 2nd place team having more than 14 points from their 8 games against the other top five teams or 14 points and better goal diff than Wales.

    I'm still hoping Belgium win tonight! Lol

    Just checked that. So, if Belgium win tonight, no team from that group can get to 14 points. So if Belgium win tonight and Wales win the last three, Wales are definitely through to the play offs at least.

    Edit: Maths fail. Not quite true.

    No, but we could do with the current 2nd place teams dropping points as it lowers the bar!

    Bizarrely the last round of fixtures do not all take place at same time so we'll know exactly what we need to do against Ireland . There is therefore a possibility we could go into the last game against Ireland needing only to draw, whilst they may need a win!

    This is a typical Welsh performance! Struggling against worst team in group!

    Bale clearly unfit and Ramsey not good enough. Get Woodburn on!

    0-1
    Robson-Kanu

    Ireland 1-0 down, so that puts Wales in 2nd place

    Ireland win would ironically have been a better result for us.

    Woodburn looks the business.

    Would have left the chance of winning the group.

    As it stands, Wales still not in the play-offs. Really, really, really need to beat Georgia next, whatever ROI do, and may still need to beat ROI as well to get into playoffs.

    this wiki page, which is seemingly updated instantly, explains all - table at the bottom shows where Wales stand out of the current second-place teams.

    Dunno, looking at the fixtures I can't see the Serbs dropping a point. Surely better for Wales to get the edge on RoI already for the 2nd place

    They could easily drop two points away to Austria. The way the playoffs are lining up, a win and a draw in the next two games will secure second but leave it in the balance. It would mean 12 points in that playoffs table, which could be enough, while 14 points from two wins would almost certainly be enough. In that sense an awful draw against Moldova wouldn't have really changed all that much given that RoI lost.

    It's a fucker. Wales are the only unbeaten team in the table of second-placed teams. And they're bottom of it. :D

    Almost certainly be enough!!!! I doubt it, the only thing that could help us is if Bosnia lose or draw with Belgium next time out!

    He doesn't do much, but what he does do is rather good. :D

    Ah you're even more of a worrier than me. 14 points in that table will be enough. 12 hmmm. It's not just Bosnia. All the other teams currently below 14 need results too.

    Scotland have cheated us out of 2 world cup appearances so the least they can do is the decent think and stuff Slovakia next month!

    We've got a healthy goal difference over Ireland.
