Baggies handed double boost

DARREN Moore has confirmed the availability of Kieran Gibbs and Ahmed Hegazi for Saturday's trip to Hull City.

Both defenders missed last weekend's 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers owing to injury but the pair will be fit for the KCOM showdown.

It's a welcome return for Ahmed in particular, with fellow centre-half Kyle Bartley set to serve a one-match suspension after he picked up his fifth booking of the season against Rovers.

In his pre-match press conference, Darren also gave an update on Dwight Gayle and Gareth Barry, who are suffering with minor calf complaints.

"Kieran and Ahmed are available," he nodded.

"We're pleased about that and we'll assess Dwight and Gareth in training on Friday.

"There's one more session before the game to monitor them but we won't be taking any risks.

"We'll make sure they're ready."
