Ridgewell boost for Albion

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.”
