Liverpool clash too soon for Sinclair

And boss provides updates on Foster, Thorne and Gera

STEVE Clarke has revealed he has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s trip to Liverpool (ko 3pm) – but says he will not risk Scott Sinclair.

This weekend’s fixture comes too soon for the 24-year-old winger – who has been out with a hamstring injury since Albion’s 2-1 win at Old Trafford. 

“Scott won’t make Saturday," said Clarke.

“He’s progressing well but as it’s a muscle injury we’re just being a little bit careful.

“He’s definitely out for Saturday.

"Ben Foster is progressing well too. 

“The ones who have been out for a little while, George Thorne and Zoltan Gera, have little niggles from the under-21s game on Sunday.

“We’ll go carefully with them.

“Everybody else available is fit and available."
