Wales striker Tom Lawrence insists Wales will not be fazed by the loss of Bale in their remaining 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
Bale will miss Wales' final two 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and the Republic of Ireland following dialogue with his club Real Madrid and a scan on an injured calf, which revealed he is not fit to feature.
Wales need to win both games to have a realistic shot of reaching the play-offs
Wales fear the calf strain could sideline Bale for the next month, possibly even jeopardising his participation if they were to reach the November play-offs.
Wales have not won once in the last 10 games that the 28-year-old talisman has missed, while they have not triumphed in a competitive game without him for nearly four years.
However, Derby striker Tom Lawrence - who is expected to feature against Georgia and the Republic - insists Wales will not be fazed by the loss of Bale after their battling 1-1 draw against Serbia in June.
Wales are not short of attacking options after calling up Barnsley striker Tom Bradshaw to replace Bale.
Liverpool teenager Ben Woodburn made a dramatic international bow last month when he scored the winner on his debut against Austria and then set up the opening goal in a 2-0 win in Moldova three days later.
Lawrence, Hal Robson-Kanu, Sam Vokes and new boy David Brooks provide further forward options, while Aaron Ramsey - who will his 50th cap in Tbilisi - could be pushed into a more advanced role behind the main striker.
