Swansea City pair will not be tired, says Wales boss Chris Coleman
CHRIS Coleman insists he will have no hesitation in playing both Ashley Williams and Ben Davies in Wales's World Cup qualification double- header, despite their hectic starts to the season.
Both players have already featured in both Swansea City's opening two Premier League games, a friendly international against Ireland and been involved in their club's Europa League campaign this August.
But Coleman believes there will be no danger of fatigue, with the season in its infancy.
"At this stage they won't be tired," said the Wales boss.
"They'll probably be physically better because of the pre-season they've had. They've had more games, more 90 minutes.
"It's when you get to February or March, when they've progressed in a few competitions and they have had a lot Premier League games, which are the most demanding physically in the world. Then they might be tired.
"At this stage they'll be in good nick. I expect them to be in good condition."
Williams and Davies are both in Coleman's squad to face Macedonia in Skopje next Friday, before Serbia visit the Cardiff City Stadium four days later.
Neil Taylor would also have featured, but was ruled out with a thigh injury.
"I'll just look at it and pick my strongest team. I did that with the Ireland game because we've got to give ourselves the best chance," added Coleman.
"Physically and mentally we'll look at it when we're all together next week and we'll say these are the guys who are physically and mentally in the right condition. That's the way we'll always look at it."
