Fitness update on defensive duo

ALAN Pardew says Albion have taken every necessary precaution to ensure Craig Dawson and Ahmed Hegazi are fit for Saturday's Premier League clash at Everton.

The duo collided inside their own six-yard box during the final 15 minutes of the Baggies' 2-0 victory over Brighton last weekend.

And the Head Coach confirmed that both defenders have been thoroughly checked ahead of the trip to Goodison Park.

"We've had to monitor Ahmed Hegazi and Craig Dawson after their clash last weekend against Brighton," said Pardew.

"We have had to go through all the procedures that have to happen with a head injury.

"We are pretty confident that they will be ok.

"We will find out on Friday."
