Duo back from injury for Forest trip

And Yacob and El Ghanassy again involved

CHRIS Brunt and Steven Reid are set to return from injury tonight after both being named in the squad to face Nottingham Forest in Albion’s final pre-season game (ko 7.45pm).

Brunt was forced to fly home early from the Baggies’ tour of Scandanavia due to a calf problem and the City Ground encounter will be his first friendly involvement this summer.

Reid missed Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Sheffield Wednesday and 3-1 win at Walsall due to a niggle - but both players have returned to training this week.

Claudio Yacob and Yassine El Ghanassy are again included in Steve Clarke’s party – but the game comes too soon for fellow new signing Markus Rosenberg.
