Church fires Wales to victory

12 October 2013 12:01

It may not be enough to save Chris Coleman's job but injury-hit Wales moved off the bottom of World Cup qualifying Group A with a 1-0 victory over Macedonia in Cardiff.

The Dragons, missing 11 players from Coleman's initial squad selection, ground out a first win in five games thanks to Simon Church's close-range finish, before the otherwise excellent Aaron Ramsey failed to convert a penalty.

Goran Pandev and Nikolce Noveski spurned two excellent chances for the visitors, but they could not find an equaliser and deny Craig Bellamy victory in his final home game in a red shirt.
