Chris Coleman: Still seeking first win as Wales boss
Wales will look to bounce straight back from opening disappointment when their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign continues against Serbia in Novi Sad on Tuesday night.
Chris Coleman's men slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Group A favourites Belgium last week - their third successive loss by that scoreline.
Wales were left aggrieved by refereeing decisions that went against them in that clash, notably when James Collins was sent off in the first half, but Coleman and captain Aaron Ramsey have both stressed they must now put the defeat behind them and look forward.
The manager said: "It is important to get something.
"People are not going to look at our situation and say we had this guy and this guy and that guy missing, they are going to say 'you've got no points', which is fair enough.
"We will try to keep 11 players on the pitch obviously and if we do that we will pick points up, I am certain of that."
The Dragons are still seeking their first win and goal under Coleman since he took over the helm from the late Gary Speed and will be hoping to break their duck against Serbia.
Sinisa Mihajlovic's side saw their opening encounter end in a goalless draw against Scotland at Hampden Park and are also seeking their first success of the campaign at the Karadjordje Stadium.
Both sides are keen to escape a tough pool which also includes Croatia and Macedonia, while Coleman is hoping to lead his troops to the World Cup finals for the first time since 1958.
The manager is waiting on the fitness of midfielder Joe Allen, who missed the Belgium game through illness.
Coleman is unable to call on the injured Craig Bellamy, Wayne Hennessey and Neil Taylor, while Collins is suspended following his sending off in last week's home defeat.
Mihajlovic could stick with the same Serbia starting XI that claimed a point at Hampden, when Premier League defenders Aleksandar Kolarov, Branislav Ivanovic and Manchester City new-boy Matija Nastasic were all involved.

Serbia v Wales
Joe Allen is adamant that it is the players who are 'letting everybody down' following Wales' 6-1 thrashing by Serbia.
Chris Coleman is hoping Wales winger Gareth Bale can keep Aleksandar Kolarov quiet following the Serbian's criticisms of British football.
