Berahino handed number nine shirt

11 April 2015

Two changes for Foxes visit

SAIDO Berahino was handed Albion's number nine shirt for today’s Barclays Premier League clash against Leicester at a sold-out Hawthorns on Astle Day.

The Throstles donned a special replica 1968 kit for the historic occasion on what promises to be a memorable day paying tribute to the club’s legendary striker Jeff Astle, who wore number nine when scoring the only goal of the FA Cup final against Everton at Wembley.

Tony Pulis made two changes from last weekend’s defeat against QPR.

Craig Dawson returned from suspension to start against the Foxes alongside Claudio Yacob, with Chris Baird and Stephane Sessegnon dropping to the bench.

Albion: Myhill, 2 Dawson, 3 Brunt, 4 Yacob, 5 McAuley, 6 Lescott, 7 Morrison, 8 Gardner, 9 Berahino, 10 Ideye, 11 Fletcher.

Subs: Rose, 12 Wisdom, 14 Olsson, 15 Baird, 16 McManaman, 17 Anichebe, 18 Sessegnon.

Leicester: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Huth, Schlupp, Cambiasso, James, Albrighton, Nugent, Vardy, Ulloa.

Subs: Schwarzer, Konchesky, Drinkwater, King, Mahrez, Wasilewski, Kramarić

Referee: Martin Atkinson (West Riding)
