Sacramento Republic v Albion - team news

Wisdom, Foster and Dawson start in California

ANDRE Wisdom has been handed an instant non-competitive debut for the Baggies as they play their final tour match at Bonney Field.

The season-long loan signing from Liverpool slots in at right-back, alongside fit-again centre-half Craig Dawson, who missed the first game between the two teams on Monday with a slight thigh problem.

Ben Foster sees his first pre-season action for Albion between the sticks but Craig Gardner misses out after his red card four days ago.

With Sacramento facing a USL Pro League clash against Pittsburgh Riverhounds on Sunday, their boss Preki has made nine changes. The sole survivors are Tommy Thompson and Max Alvarez while one-day loan signing JJ Koval, from San Jose Earthquakes, also starts.

SACRAMENTO: Jukubek, Evans, Bond, Delbridge, Gilbert, Thompson, Koval, Gilberto, Alvarez, Stewart, Bartlome. Subs: Gleeson, Avesyan, Gonzalez, G Padilla, J Padilla, Collins, Gissie.

ALBION: Foster, Wisdom, Dawson, Olsson, Pocognoli, Baird, Yacob, Mulumbu, Berahino, Anichebe, Dorrans. Subs: L Daniels, D Daniels, A Nabi, Garmston, Roofe, Atkinson, O'Neil.

REFEREE: M Zapata.
