Now Wales are preparing to face Georgia in Cardiff on Sunday.

Ward’s place in the squad has been taken by Adam Davies, of Championship rivals Barnsley.

The other keeper in the squad is Owain Fon Williams, of Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Wrexham product Ward, 23, has played every minute for Town this season.

He has kept three clean sheets for the Championship leaders, one of them in the 1-0 win at Ipswich Town last time out.

Wednesday, beaten play-off finalists last season, are ninth.

Carlos Carvalhal’s side were beaten 2-1 at home to Brighton and Hove Albion in their last match.

But before that, they won four out of five.

Town, whose deputies for Ward are former Oldham Athletic man Joel Coleman and experienced Joe Murphy, will be seeking their first win over Wednesday in six attempts.
