[Gareth Bale remains a talismanic presence for Wales, but Tom Lawrence admits the Real Madrid star cannot be expected to carry the expectations of a nation by himself] We can’t leave it all down to Gareth himself, other players have got to chip in and help the team. There’s a few of us pushing for a start on Friday and we’ll all be looking forward to getting on the pitch. When he [Bale] is playing he’s one of the world’s best. Every time he can get on the pitch for Wales is a bonus. It always helps when you’re playing games. When you’re not match-fit it’s never easy to come and play games

[Lawrence missed out on that stunning run at Euro 2016 through injury] It was a tough time. You’re looking forward to going to the Euros and for that to be halted by an injury is never nice. I’d love to play in a major tournament. It was my biggest learning curve in missing the Euros and dealing with that. Since then I’ve come on a long way. It would be nice to get in there again

[Tom Lawrence has been named in the Wales squad for this month’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Slovakia and Croatia] [I picked them] to give the team, the fans and the club something back. That’s why I did it. It still doesn’t change the fact of what we said as a club. They are not off the hook. We made it very clear that there will be disciplinary sanctions and actions for the players. But you have to move on after a certain time and they weren’t included in the last game. They are affected by it very much. I spoke the last few days a lot with the players and they were eager to go and play

[Drink-drive duo Lawrence & Bennett fined six weeks’ wages as Derby announce end of disciplinary actions] Derby County Football Club has completed the disciplinary hearing regarding Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett in respect of their involvement in the events of last Tuesday evening, which resulted in both of them being arrested and scheduled to appear in court on 15th October.

Irrespective of the outcome of that process, the club will not tolerate any of its players or staff behaving in a manner which puts themselves, their colleagues, and members of the general public at risk of injury or worse, or which brings the club into disrepute.

Both Lawrence and Bennett are therefore being fined the equivalent of six weeks’ wages – the maximum contractual limit - and will serve an additional 80 hours of community and rehabilitation, which will include a drink aware course. The club will be making no further comment regards this matter

[Tom Lawrence would later release a statement of his own] Following the events of the evening of the 24th September I wish to offer my sincere apologies to the football club; our Chairman, the manager, my team-mates and all our supporters for my indiscretions that night. It was a total error of judgement on my part, out of character for me and I am deeply disappointed in my behaviour and upset for my teammate and our Captain Richard Keogh. Going forward, I will make every effort to make amends by working diligently to give something back to our local community and I will strive to repay all the faith and support I have received from everybody during my time at the club in the best way I know how, on the field of play
