Wolves midfielder Lee Evans is the latest injury concern for Wales' Euro 2016 qualifiers against Bosnia-Hercegovina and Cyprus this month.

The former Newport County player suffered a hamstring injury during Wolves' 3-1 defeat by Huddersfield.

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett is optimistic Evans will be able to join up with Wales for the qualifiers in Cardiff.

Evans, 20, is also a doubt for Wolves' Championship game at home to Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

He was called up to the squad for the first time after impressive performances for Jackett's side.

Wales have back-to-back home matches against Bosnia-Hercegovina on Friday, 10 October and Cyprus three days later.

Manager Chris Coleman is already without midfielders Joe Allen, Aaron Ramsey and David Vaughan for the Group B double header.

Former Swansea City player Allen has not played for Liverpool since suffering a knee injury in Wales' 2-1 win in Andorra on 9 September, since when it is believed he had a double hernia operation.

Fellow midfielders Ramsey of Arsenal and Nottingham Forest's Vaughan are sidelined by hamstring injuries.
