Three changes for Stoke clash

14 March 2015

Fletcher, Sessegnon and Foster return

ALBION strikers Saido Berahino and Brown Ideye both passed late fitness tests to start today’s Barclays Premier League clash against Stoke (3pm ko).

The attacking duo were doubts for the encounter at The Hawthorns but shrugged off their respective concerns to start against the Potters.

Captain Darren Fletcher was also back in Tony Pulis’s starting XI having been cup-tied for last weekend’s defeat at Aston Villa, while there was also a recall for Stephane Sessegnon.

Ben Foster was the third and final change as he replaced Boaz Myhill, who dropped to the bench alongside Jonas Olsson. 

Claudio Yacob, the final player to make way, started his two-game suspension for the red card received at Villa Park.

Albion: Foster, Dawson, McAuley, Lescott, Brunt, Morrison, Fletcher, Gardner, Sessegnon, Berahino, Ideye.

Subs: Myhill, Wisdom, Pocognoli, Olsson, Baird, Mulumbu, Gamboa. 

Stoke: Begovic, Bardsley, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters, Nzonzi, Whelan, Walters, Adam, Moses, Crouch.

Subs: Butland, Ireland, Arnautovic, Diouf, Cameron, Sidwell, Teixeira.

Referee: Michael Oliver (Northumberland)
