Wales have suffered three further withdrawals ahead of Wednesday's friendly against Slovenia.
John Toshack's plans for the game have been hit by the absences of Craig Bellamy, Ben Thatcher and Simon Davies.
Blackburn Rovers striker Bellamy has pulled out of the squad due to an ankle injury, while Everton midfielder Davies is missing with a shin complaint.
Completing the list of casualties is Manchester City full back Thatcher, who has been laid low by an ankle problem.
To compensate for the late withdrawals, Wales coach Toshack has drafted in Oxford United forward Craig Davies from the Under-21 squad.
Earlier on Tuesday, Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs pulled out of the squad due to a chest infection.
