Football: TOSH TRACKS PARTRIDGE.

WALES are ready to bring big Motherwell destroyer David Partridge into John Toshack's revolution.

The former West Ham discard, now 26, has been forgotten by the Dragons since winning one Under-21 cap - against Turkey - under Bobby Gould in 1997.

But London-born Partridge, who qualifies for Wales through parentage, has rebuilt his career with Dundee United and at Fir Park - even correcting a terrible disciplinary record. Just 18 months back Partridge picked up 10 yellow and two red cards in a campaign that saw him suspended on numerous occasions.

But Partridge is a reformed character. And new Wales boss Toshack is ready to include him in the squad to face Hungary at the Millennium Stadium on February 9.

Celtic's Welsh striker John Hartson has kept tabs on Partridge. He said: "David is left-sided centre-back. He's a useful player who is having a decent season for Motherwell."
