Striker boost for Baggies

But Stoke game comes too soon for Sinclair and Foster

ALBION have been boosted by the news Victor Anichebe and Matej Vydra will be available for selection against Stoke on Saturday (ko 3pm).

Anichebe has recovered from the groin problem that forced him to miss the 1-1 draw with Arsenal 11 days ago.

Vydra has not seen first-team action since picking up a hamstring injury in the 3-0 Capital One Cup win over Newport at the end of August – but got valuable game time in the Under-21s' 4-3 victory at Reading and 5-0 training-game success over Derby last week.

The Britannia Stadium clash comes too soon for Scott Sinclair (hamstring) and Ben Foster (foot).

But Jonas Olsson is available after missing Sweden’s game with Germany on Tuesday due to personal reasons.
