28 August 2012

Rosenberg and El Ghanassy handed full debuts

SUMMER signings Markus Rosenberg and Yassine El Ghanassy are handed their full Albion debuts as Steve Clarke makes ten changes to the side that drew 1-1 at Spurs on Saturday.

The Baggies boss has eight players unavailable with minor knocks due to the short period of time between games.

 The only man to keep his place in the starting XI from White Hart Lane is Shane Long.

Ben Foster, Gareth McAuley, Claudio Yacob, Youssouf Mulumbu and Marc-Antoine Fortune drop to the bench, while Steven Reid, Jonas Olsson, Liam Ridgewell, Graham Dorrans and James Morrison miss out altogether.

Gary Johnson names an unchanged Glovers side to the one that beat Scunthorpe 4-0 at the weekend.

The hosts have named only six substitutes on the bench.

YEOVIL: Stech, Ayling, McAllister, Hinds, Webster, Marsh-Brown, Blizzard, Upson, Foley, Hayter, Reid. Subs: Stewart (gk), Young, Ralph, Ince, Nkumu, Ugwu.

ALBION (4-2-3-1): Myhill; Jara Reyes, Dawson, Tamas, Jones; Thorne, Brunt; Gera; Rosenberg, Long, El Ghanassy. Subs: Foster (gk), McAuley, Hurst, Yacob, Mulumbu, Fortune, Berahino.

REFEREE: D Sheldrake (Surrey).
