Yacob set for first Albion start

And Olympians Dawson and Wood back for Baggies action

NEW signing Claudio Yacob will make his first start in an Albion shirt when Steve Clarke’s men continue their pre-season campaign at Walsall tonight (ko 7.45pm).

The Argentina international got 25 minutes under his belt as a second-half substitute on his Baggies debut in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Sheffield Wednesday.

And he will kick-off alongside fellow summer recruit Yassine El Ghanassy and returning Olympians Craig Dawson and Chris Wood against the League One Saddlers.

The rest of the squad will be made up of a combination of senior players who did not start at Hillsborough at the weekend and development squad players.
