James Chester and Hal Robson-Kanu are injury doubts for Wales' Euro 2016 qualifiers against Cyprus and Israel.

Defender Chester missed West Brom's 1-0 win at Stoke City with what his manager Tony Pulis described as a "minor hamstring injury".

Forward Robson-Kanu was substituted during Reading's 3-1 victory at Brentford with a groin strain.

Both are expected to join up with the Wales squad on Sunday and they will be assessed by the medical team.

Wales have a three-point lead at the top of Euro 2016 qualifying Group B with four games remaining.

Wins in their next two matches could be enough to seal Wales' place at a major finals for the first time since 1958.

The top two sides from each group qualify automatically for the Euro 2016 finals in France, with Wales holding a five-point lead over third-placed Israel going into September's games.
