Long available for tour finale

Clarke has full squad to pick from against Puskas FC Academy

ALBION will wrap up their pre-season trip to Austria tonight by hopping across the border to Hungary to take on Puskas FC Academy at FC Sopron's stadium (ko 6pm local time).

Steve Clarke will have the luxury of a full squad to call on after six days of gruelling training at their Bad Waltersdorf base.

Shane Long is back in contention after being forced to sit out Thursday’s Hannover 96 clash in Gleisdorf due to a minor toe injury.

Long-term absentees Zoltan Gera and George Thorne will again not be involved as they continue their recovery from serious knee injuries.

Puskas FC Academy were last term promoted to Hungary’s top flight after climbing the league from division four since 2007.

The club bases their footballing philosophy on nurturing young talent and the only two league games they lost last term came in their final four matches.

Admission on the gate for Albion fans is free for under sevens and over 65s; 1,000HUF (approx £3) 7-18 year olds; and 2,000 HUF (approx £6) adults.
