And Clarke provides update on Odemwingie and Brown
STEVE Clarke has given Liam Ridgewell the green light for Saturday’s clash with Newcastle (ko 3pm).
The Baggies left-back has overcome a groin problem that forced him to withdraw from training earlier in the week.
Peter Odemwingie remains a doubt due to a niggling injury behind his knee that forced to sit out the Arsenal game 12 days ago, while Isaiah Brown (groin) will not be risked by the Baggies boss.
Clarke said: “Peter will struggle for this weekend and the only other one that will struggle injury-wise is young Izzy Brown, who picked up a small groin strain through the week – I won’t risk him this weekend.
“Liam Ridgewell is fit and available.”
